The Maryland Women’s Basketball Team handily took down the Nebraska Cornhuskers by a score of 93-49 at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Wednesday night.
The Terps have shown no letdown after their big game against Connecticut. They have opened up conference play with two road wins.
Shatori Walker-Kimbrough again led Maryland as far as scoring goes, with 19 points. She was 7-11 from the field, and had seven rebounds on Wednesday.
Kimbrough, who had eight quick points on 3-3 shooting, started hot, as did her team. Maryland was up 22-6 in the first quarter before Nebraska could even blink.
The hot start continued in the second quarter, as Maryland stretched their lead to 42-18. A big reason for this early success was Brenda Fraser, who had 10 first half points off the bench on 5-6 shooting.
Destiny Slocum did not have her best night scoring, as she was just 1-6 from the floor for six points. She did however, contribute in other ways, as she tallied seven assists compared to just one turnover.
Brionna Jones had another solid game for the Terrapins, as she was second on the team in scoring with 13 points. Her biggest impact on the game was on the defensive end though, as she had five steals and four blocks.
Maryland dominated the game from start to finish. They were still pouring it on in the fourth quarter too, as the Terps opened the final quarter on a 19-0 run.
The Terrapins now head back home after two games on the road. They will take on the 13-3 Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday, January 7th at 2 PM.
