College Park, MD–

terps vs mich 2In a game where it was all about playing to honor Kay Yow and those who suffer from breast cancer everyday, the Terps certainly paid their honor with another solid victory in the second half against Michigan.

Maryland fell behind by nine points in the second quarter and 30-29 at halftime. This was only the third time this season Maryland trailed at the break.

Just as the Terps have done many times in the past, they emerged from the locker room and third quarter, however, was completely different. Brionna Jones scored six points in an 11-3 run that put the Terrapins up 40-36, and Maryland tallied the final nine points of the period for a 51-40 lead.

“I thought we did a great job in the first half of taking Maryland out of what they normally do,” coach Kim Barnes Arico said. “But the No. 6 team in the country really showed why they’re the No. 6 team in the country with the balanced attack they had. And Brionna Jones just wore us down.”

Maryland out rebounded Michigan, 40-24. The Terps shot 49.2 percent from the field and held the Wolverines to 37 percent shooting in the second half.
