Thomas leads Maryland women past Georgia Tech
Question of the Day
Despite a difficult shooting night from the field, Thomas went 12 of 12 on free throws to help Maryland (20-3, 7-3 ACC) win its second straight.
Sasha Goodlett, who finished with 15 points, was the only player to score in double figures for Georgia Tech (17-7, 7-4). The loss snapped the Yellow Jackets’ four-game winning streak.
Hawkins went 11-for-13 from the field and grabbed nine boards. The Terrapins outrebounded Georgia Tech 43-28.
The teams had split the last four games, which had been decided by a margin of 3.3 points, in the series. The lead changed hands eight times, and the score was tied 12 times.
Thomas hit just five of 15 shots from the field.
Lynetta Kizer was just 1-for-9 from the field when she hit a 16-footer to give the Terrapins a 52-44 lead with 6:05 remaining.
The Yellow Jackets followed by scoring 10 unanswered points and going up by two on Ty Marshall’s layup.
Goodlett and Marshall each had five rebounds for Georgia Tech, which dropped to 0-6 this season against ranked opponents.
Hawkins‘ jumper with 2:09 remaining gave Maryland a 56-54 lead, and the Terrapins never trailed again.
The Yellow Jackets, who failed to hold a 20-point lead early in the second half at Maryland last month and lost by three points, let the Terrapins end the first half on a 10-0 run, capped by Thomas‘ two free throws, for a 24-24 tie at intermission.
