Turnovers help swamp Terps women

March 01, 2010|By Gene Wang | The Washington Post

COLLEGE PARK — — The Maryland women's basketball team finished its regular season with a 94-61 loss to ninth-ranked Florida State on Sunday in a game that juxtaposed the value of veteran leadership against the inconsistency often associated with youth.

With three seniors in their starting lineup, the visiting Seminoles withstood Maryland's 6-0 burst to open the game, tied it soon after and used deft 3-point shooting to pull away before halftime.

"I think from our end, it was a game that was not very typical of how we play," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. "I thought we played probably one of our worst games up to this point of the season."

Freshman Diandra Tchatchouang led Maryland (18-11, 5-9 ACC) with a game-high 23 points and five rebounds; sophomore Lynetta Kizer added 17 points. They were the only Maryland players to score in double figures.

In her final game at Comcast Center, Terrapins senior Lori Bjork had five points and missed nine of 11 shots, including five of six from 3-point range.

Juniors Courtney Ward and Christian Hunnicutt led Florida State each with a team-high 15 points, and Ward also contributed a team-high five rebounds. All 11 Seminoles scored.

Angel Gray had 14 points on 4-for-5 shooting, including 3-for-3 from 3-point range, for the Seminoles (26-4, 12-2), who won their eighth straight game.
