No. 5 Terrapins Crush Delaware St. 108-33

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Laurin Mincy scored 15 points, one of eight players to reach double figures for No. 5 Maryland on Thursday night in a 108-33 rout of Delaware State, the largest margin of victory in school history.

The Terrapins (10-0) made 13 of their first 18 shots and shot 67 percent from the floor in taking a 57-14 halftime lead. Maryland made as many baskets (24) in the first half as the turnover-prone Hornets attempted.

The 75-point victory topped the Terrapins' previous high of 71 points, set in 1975 against Frostburg State and matched in 1993 against Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Delaware State (2-7) has lost seven straight.

The Terrapins finished with a 48-20 rebounding advantage, limited the Hornets to 20 percent shooting and forced 23 turnovers - including six shot-clock violations in the first half alone.

No. 6 Duke Falls at No. 10 Kentucky 72-65

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Bria Goss beamed. It was the guard's best game so far, but she was happier for all the attention on her fellow freshman roommate, Azia Bishop.

Bishop had 12 points and 11 rebounds, Goss added 19 points and No. 10 Kentucky beat No. 6 Duke 72-65 on Thursday night in front of the largest home crowd for a women's game in Wildcats history.

A'dia Mathies led the way with 23 points, but it was Bishop's unexpected play following a tough week of practice under coach Matthew Mitchell that propelled the Wildcats late.

Kentucky (9-0) shook off a slow start with a second-half rally in front of 14,508 fans at Rupp Arena for its 29th straight nonconference home win. The Wildcats used their pressure defense to force the Blue Devils into a season-high 24 turnovers and made several clutch shots during an 8-0 run that sealed the victory.

Elizabeth Williams scored 17 points for Duke (6-2), but the Blue Devils couldn't counter Kentucky after falling behind by 10 with just under 5 minutes to play.
