COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Chloe Bibby scored 21 points to lead six players in double figures and No. 17 Maryland defeated Nebraska 80-65 on Sunday for the Terrapins’ fifth consecutive win.
Angel Reese had 15 points and completed her 13th double-double of the season with 16 rebounds, 10 of which were at the offensive end. Shyanne Sellers and Mimi Collins scored 11 points each and Diamond Miller and Katie Benzan added 10 each for Maryland (17-6, 9-3 Big Ten).
Ashley Scoggin led Nebraska (17-5, 6-5) with 20 points. Isabelle Bourne had 11 points and Alexis Markowski grabbed 12 rebounds.
Maryland led 26-11 after one quarter and 43-20 at the half. The Terrapins, the No. 7 scoring team in the nation, came up just short of their season average of 81 points.
It was a dominating home performance for Maryland, which improved to 61-5 in Big Ten home games since joining the conference in 2014.
Maryland honored Benzan, Bibby, Channise Lewis and Zoe Young on Senior Day.
Maryland’s win assures that the Big Ten’s five ranked teams — No. 5 Indiana, No. 6 Michigan, No. 17 Maryland, No. 21 Iowa and No. 23 Ohio State — will remain within two games of each other in the loss column in the conference standings.
After a home game against Wisconsin on Wednesday, Maryland plays each of the other four ranked teams to conclude the regular season.
