Vic­tory No. 501 fol­lowed shortly there­after, though it re­quired a de­ci­sive fourth-quar­ter surge from the ninthranked Terps to se­cure an 83-69 tri­umph over the Wolver­ines.

Guard Tay­lor Mike­sell led Mary­land (15-1, 4-1 Big Ten) with 17 points and five as­sists, and cen­ter Shakira Austin added See WOMEN, page 7
