Atlantic Coast Conference
Latest Atlantic Coast Conference Items
The Terrapins — who are down to essentially a six-player rotation because of injuries — simply didn't have enough fresh bodies to keep up with the deeper Tar Heels.
Thomas, who earlier in the week won her second ACC player of the year award, had a career-high 32 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for her second triple-double of the season.
The football and basketball schools in the ever-changing conference announced Friday that they have agreed to a settlement that will allow the two sides to go their own ways on July 1.
This will be the 89th meeting between the schools (Syracuse leads 48-40), and John Thompson III said it won't be the last. But occasional non-conference matchups probably won't hold the same sway.
Since beating Duke, Maryland has lost three of five — including a deflating 79-68 defeat at home against North Carolina on Wednesday night.
Dez Wells led Maryland with 18 points and Nick Faust had 16. The Terrapins missed 20 of 23 attempts from 3-point range.
Wells, a Raleigh native who played AAU ball for the Chris Paul All-Stars, was 11 of 12 from the field and finished two points shy of his career high of 25 set Dec. 2 against George Mason.
Harris and Akil Mitchell combined for 55 of the Cavaliers' points as they celebrated the 11-year anniversary of their last victory over a top 5 team by doing it again on Thursday night.
The loss left Maryland 1-6 in road ACC games. Maryland (19-9, 7-8) is 15-2 at home, but its latest road loss was a damaging blow to its NCAA tournament hopes.
