WASHINGTON (AP) - Georgetown ended a 10-minute scoring drought with back-to-back 3-pointers late in the second half as the No. 13 Hoyas earned their first victory over No. 21 Maryland on Monday, 53-45.
Hobbled with leg cramps, Rubylee Wright made a 3-pointer with 1:39 left to give Georgetown (2-0) a 46-45 lead. Sugar Rodgers followed with another 3 seconds later to give the Hoyas breathing room and move to 1-8 against the Terrapins (1-1). Rodgers scored a game-high 21 points.
Maryland was hindered by turnovers (29) and poor shooting (18 percent overall), yet still overcame a 35-23 deficit thanks to 63 rebounds and 21 free throws. An 8-0 run gave the Terps a 45-43 lead with 1:56 left, but they did not score again. Lynetta Kizer had 10 points and 16 rebounds to lead Maryland.
