After Nicole Boudreau’s 3 from the left corner gave BC a 29-28 edge with just over 6 minutes to play before halftime, the Terrapins scored the next 13 points over a 2:39 span. Thomas started the spree with a pair of free throws and closed it with a 3-point play.

The lead changed hands 10 times until Maryland’s surge.

In the opening minutes, the Eagles kept it tight mainly by nailing 3s to offset the Terrapins’ inside scoring. Once BC seemed to clamp down defensively on Maryland’s inside players, Brown started nailing some long-range 3s, with four coming in the final 8 minutes of the half.

Both teams shot at least 50 percent from beyond the arc in the opening half. Maryland - behind Brown’s 4 of 6 - was 7 for 12. BC went 6 for 12.

In the second half, Maryland outscored BC 16-8 to build its lead to 66-46 on Walker-Kimbrough’s driving basket with 12½ minutes to play.

Thomas scored seven consecutive points during a 9-0 run as the Terrapins opened their lead to 77-51 with just under 10 minutes left.

The Terrapins host Virginia Tech in their regular season finale Sunday, while BC plays at Georgia Tech.

The Eagles honored their two seniors - Doherty and injured forward Katie Zenevitch - in their last home game before tip-off. Zenevitch started and when Maryland won the opening tip Frese immediately called timeout so the forward could leave the game to a nice ovation, limping to the bench with a knee injury.
