The fifth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team has compiled victories with such ease this season that the opponent has seemed all but incidental. Sunday's 78-50 win against George Mason was another case in point, with the Terrapins using the game at Patriot Center to sharpen their matchup zone defense and give the reserves playing time before the extended holiday break. Maryland got the usual production from starters Alyssa Thomas, Laurin Mincy and others, but coach Brenda Frese was able to substitute liberally from roughly midway through the first half of an 11th consecutive win to open the season.
