    Maryland starts with 23-2 run, beats Central Conn.

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Crystal Langhorne's second perfect shooting game of the season helped Maryland reach the title game of the Terrapin Classic.

    Shay Doron scored 26 points and Langhorne added 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 6 Maryland past Central Connecticut State 94-57 in the opening round of the Terrapin Classic on Thursday night.

    "I was getting some open looks," Doron said. "With the way our team is this year, you really can't key on any one individual, so it was my night to step up."

    Langhorne was 9-for-9 from the field for the Terrapins (11-1), who will face Furman on Friday in the championship game. Furman advanced with an 86-81 overtime win over Maryland-Eastern Shore.

    The sophomore forward said she wasn't that impressed with her shooting effort because she was called for traveling several times.

    "I consider those kind of like misses," Langhorne said. "I wasn't really paying attention."

    Langhorne went 6-for-6 against Appalachian State on Dec. 1, and is shooting 68.6 percent this season.

    "I think we came out really well," Langhorne said. "We were intense, played great defense and I think we did a good job offensively too."

    Gabriella Guegbelet had 24 points and seven rebounds, and Kim Boone added 17 points for the Blue Devils (2-7), who lost their sixth straight.

    We really challenged them in terms of our communication and our focus," said Maryland coach Brenda Frese. "We reduced our turnovers in this game, but I think we still need to be a little bit more efficient in what we're doing."

    Marissa Coleman added 15 points and six assists for Maryland, while Ashleigh Newman and Laura Harper each scored 10 points.

    The Terps went on a 23-0 run to take a 23-2 lead in the opening 6 minutes.

    Central Connecticut State went 9:12 between its first and second field goals. During that span, Maryland built a 28-4 lead and led 51-16 at halftime.

    Maryland limited the Blue Devils to 39.3 percent shooting from the field and scored 27 points off 17 turnovers.
