The University of Maryland’s women’s basketball team has been a powerhouse for a number of years. Most people can’t even guess where Bluefield State is located. The two teams met, and the final score was simply unfair as Maryland won 146-17.

The Terrapins opened up the game with a 27-3 scoring run within the first five minutes of the game. By halftime, the score reached 74-17. Bluefield State wouldn’t score a single basket during the second half of the game.

“I thought tonight was a good tuneup for us,” head coach Brenda Frese said. “We have so many new players between our freshmen and Ieshia Small. We played with a lot of enthusiasm and played really hard. A lot of great things and we got rid of those jitters.”

Small finished the game with seven points, but it was freshman Blair Watson who led the way with 29 points.

Maryland is ranked No. 6 in the Associated Press preseason poll and No. 5 in USA Today’s poll.

The Terrapins will officially begin their season on Nov. 13 against UMass-Lowell.
