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).
