ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Shatori Walker-Kimbrough had 15 points and seven rebounds and No. 8 Maryland shook off a pesky Michigan team, pulling away in the fourth quarter for a 74-67 victory Thursday night.

Tierney Pfirman added 16 points, and Brionna Jones had 13 for the Terrapins (15-2, 4-1 Big Ten), who won despite shooting only 41 percent from the field. Maryland had 21 offensive rebounds.

Katelynn Flaherty led the Wolverines with 23 points.

Michigan (10-6, 2-3) trailed by as many as 12 points in the first half, but the Wolverines rallied and made a game of it early in the third quarter. Michigan led 52-50 with 5:25 remaining in the third after a three-point play by Hallie Thome, but the Wolverines were shut out for the rest of the period.
