Maryland atop Big Ten

Article excerpt

Hopewell's Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 11 points and was on of five players in double figures as No. 7 Maryland breezed to an 85- 56 victory against visiting Michigan.

The Terrapins (16-2, 7-0) playing in their first season in the Big Ten remained the only undefeated team in league play. Laurin Mincy scored 17 points as Maryland won its 10th in a row.

The Terrapins opened the second half with a 10-2 run to extend their 11-point halftime lead to 47-28. The margin swelled to 24 with 14 minutes left, and Maryland cruised to the finish in its 10th home win without a loss.

Aerial Powers scored 28 for the Spartans (9-10, 1-7), who have lost eight of 10 and dressed only eight players.

"I thought our depth -- to be able to send waves in this game -- was really important, to where we could wear Michigan State down," said Maryland coach Brenda Frese said.

"That's going to be a big plus for us moving forward, to be able to use the depth that we have."
