Brown leads No. 8 Maryland women over Ohio 84-60
Maryland coach Brenda Frese has been happy with the progress of
her guards so far this season.
Freshman Lexie Brown scored a season-high 16 points and Brene
Moseley had 12 points and nine assists in No. 8 Maryland’s 84-60
rout of Ohio in the San Juan Shootout on Friday. Moseley had 18
assists over the two games of the tournament.
”I was really proud how we kept up our level of play on short
rest from yesterday,” Frese said. ”It was great to see Lexie and
Brene score as well as distribute. Just proud of how we got down to
business when we needed to this weekend. Lexie is a player and
we’ve known that since she was 15. She wants the ball and we’re
starting to see that really consistently. She can score and
distribute and it’s just great to have so many options.”
Alyssa Thomas had 13 points and 10 rebounds while Malina Howard
had 13 points for the Terrapins (7-1).
Maryland trailed 14-11 early on before taking over with a 26-5
run. The Terrapins led 44-25 at the half.
The Terrapins’ next game is at home against Ohio State in the
ACC/Big Ten challenge on Wednesday night.
Lexie Baldwin and Kiyanna Black each scored 12 points to lead
the Bobcats (3-3).
