COLLEGE PARK — — Every game, it seems, brings a new lesson for the young Maryland women's basketball team. Earlier this week, the Terrapins had to learn how to survive when their shots weren't falling. On Thursday night, they had to figure out how to persevere after wasting a 26-point lead and repeatedly throwing the ball away.

Maryland (3-0) leaned on Lynetta Kizer and Diandra Tchatchouang and pulled away for an 84-67 victory over Old Dominion in front of an announced 4,681 at Comcast Center.

The two forwards combined for 41 points on 17-for-23 shooting.

"That was a thrill of a game, and hang on because it's going to be quite a ride," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said.

"I'm really proud of the poise and composure that we kept in the second half. Obviously with the momentum changing - building that lead coming out of halftime and then their press giving us some difficulties - I thought we did a great job, with such a young team, of just keeping our poise and composure."
