Terri Daniels saved 11 of her team-high 16 points for the second half yesterday, helping Maryland turn away Georgia Tech and earn its first Atlantic Coast Conference win, 71-63, in front of 2,637 at Comcast Center in College Park.

The Terrapins (7-6, 1-1) never trailed in the game, although the Yellow Jackets (11-2, 0-2) trimmed a 42-31 halftime deficit to 62-60 with 3:23 to play.

Daniels (St. Mary's) stepped up from there, hitting a free throw and handing out two assists during a 6-0 run that put the game away.

Renneika Razor and Angel Ross finished with 12 points each for the Terps, who posted a season-low 13 turnovers.

Georgia Tech's Sonja Mallory led all scorers with 17 points.

Navy 71, Albany 63: Maile Shimoda and Courtney Davidson combined for 26 of the Midshipmen's final 33 points in the victory over the Great Danes (6-5) at Alumni Hall.

In beating the upstate New York school, Navy closed the non-Patriot League portion of its schedule with a six-game winning streak and a 10-3 record.

Davidson scored 24 points, 17 in the second half and 12 in the game's final 12:29.

Shimoda scored 16 points, with all of them coming in the second half and 12 in the last 4:21 of the game.

Shimoda also finished with five assists and a season-high four steals.

Albany finished 8-for-23 from behind the three-point line three days after making 17 of 35 three-point tries in a 91-point outburst against Lafayette.

The Great Danes committed 19 turnovers yesterday and were 9-for-14 from the free-throw line.

Drexel 59, Towson 54: The Tigers (1-9) held a lead late in the second half of their Colonial Athletic Association opener in Philadelphia, but the Dragons (6-5, 2-0) hit nine of 10 free throws down the stretch to seal the victory, their sixth in their past seven games.

Sophomore Kelli Talbot (team-high 15 points) hit a three-pointer with 3:38 to play to give the Tigers a 45-44 lead.

But less than a minute later, Drexel regained the lead for good on a layup by Catherine Scanlon.

The Tigers out-rebounded the Dragons 35-31 but committed 12 turnovers to Drexel's nine.
