    Maryland wins 11th straight vs. Greyhounds

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Lynetta Kizer scored a season-high 21 points, Tianna Hawkins added 17 points and 12 rebounds and Maryland (No. 22 AP) won its seventh straight game, 79-61 over Loyola of Maryland on Tuesday night.

    The Terrapins (8-1) took control by ending the first half on a 32-7 run and won despite the absence of second-leading scorer Alyssa Thomas, who sat out with a knee laceration.

    Erica DiClemente led the Greyhounds (2-6) with a career-high 22 points. Miriam McKenzie added 12 points and Alyssa Sutherland had 10.

    Maryland is 17-3 all-time against the Greyhounds and has beaten their in-state rivals 11 straight times.

    Loyola, which had a two-game win streak snapped, shot 19-for-57 (33 percent) and hit only 8-of-29 3-point attempts.

    Without Thomas, the Terrapins struggled early to find their rhythm. Successive jumpers by McKenzie and DiClemente produced a 16-11 Loyola lead with 11:06 remaining in the first half.

    But Kizer converted from the baseline to start the decisive run, Maryland's defense clamped down on the smaller Greyhounds and the Terrapins grabbed a 43-23 halftime lead.

    Loyola was 7-for-30 from the floor in the first half and started 0-for-14 from beyond the arc.
