WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Senior forward Bonnie Rimkus had 32 points and 10 rebounds to lead Maryland past Wake Forest, 84-67, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game last night.

"We came out like we really wanted to play," said Maryland coach Chris Weller. "We played with a lot more pride in ourselves."

Rimkus scored the Terrapins' first 11 points, and Maryland (8-3, 3-1) held Wake Forest (4-9, 0-5) to eight points in the first 10 minutes, taking a 23-8 lead.

Rimkus scored 19 in the first half and added 13 in the second. She shot 13-for-19 from the field, including three three-pointers and 3-for-4 from the line.

"I guess when you're on, you're on," said Rimkus.

The Deacons pulled to within 45-27 to end the first half and shot a season-best 76 percent in the second half. Maryland's defense, however, proved to be too much.

"We were overwhelmed by their pressure defense," said Wake Forest coach Karen Freeman. "But that was no surprise because we knew how tough Maryland's defense was."

Michele Andrew added 21 points for Maryland, and Nicole Levesque led Wake Forest with 22.
