The eighth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team has had an excruciating tendency for missing layups this season, and on Sunday afternoon, that failing along with careless ball security and inefficiency from the free throw line contributed to a 76-74 loss to No. 6 Miami before 11,008 at Comcast Center. The Hurricanes went ahead for good, 73-72, with 39 seconds to play on senior forward Sylvia Bullock's jumper from the left side. Maryland had a chance to regain the lead, which it had held from midway through the first half until two minutes remained in the game, but senior guard Anjale Barrett missed a short jumper.

The ninth-ranked Maryland women's basketball had begun to pull away in its regular season finale Sunday afternoon when the Terps backslid briefly, surrendering consecutive 3-pointers near the end of the first half that allowed Wake Forest a glimmer of hope. Then in the closing seconds before intermission, senior forward Tianna Hawkins collected a pass from Alyssa Thomas on a fast break, pulled up behind the 3-point line and swished a jumper at the buzzer to send Maryland into the locker room with momentum.

WASHINGTON - -Coach Brenda Frese had talked in the days leading up to Maryland's basketball game against American about how her players needed to show more fortitude on the road. The Terrapins responded with plenty on Sunday. Maryland got double doubles from Lynetta Kizer and Tianna Hawkins and out-rebounded the Eagles by a margin of more than 2-to-1 in a 75-64 triumph at Bender Arena. The Terrapins (9-2) won their first road game this season, thanks to that duo's rugged inside play as well as efficient game management from freshman point guard Dara Taylor, who had 11 assists against four turnovers.

Jimmy V Classic Virginia@ No. 9 Maryland Thursday, 7p.m. It was going to be demanding enough for the ninth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team to come to XL Center, the second home court to No. 2 Connecticut, and prove a match for the seven-time NCAA champions with a full complement of players, much less with the starting backcourt unavailable because of injury. Then consider that three of the eight members of the Terps' active roster are freshmen, and there was every reason to believe the proceedings would get out of hand in short time Monday night before an announced 11,645.
