There were quite a few games this season where the Terps looked as if they just did not have what it took to compete in the first half of the game, then the second half rolled around. Tonight, was no different as the Terps battled back from 26 points down, only to fall short in the final minute of the game against Stanford tonight in Spokane.
One thing can be said about the defending National Champion Cardinal is they know how to get out front early and make it tough for their opponents to battle back later in the game just as the Terps found out.
Maryland went on a 12-2 run in the 4th quarter, but it would fare a little too late for Frese and her crew tonight.
Stanford was led by Lexie Hull 19 points and Haley Jones with 17 points. After the game, they were asked what sparked the charge that kept them alive late in the game.
“I got hot, Cam got hot, Lexie got hot, and whoever it is, I think we did a really good job at feeding that hot hand,” Jones said. “We do that in every game.”
The Terps had one of their worst shooting nights from three-point range tonight going 3 for 19 from long range.
Angel Reese led the way for the Terps with 25 points. The big difference for the Terps was the absence of Ashley Owusu, who only had 4 points in 24 minutes of game action.
Tonight’s loss also marked the final games of Chloe Bibby and Katie Benzen.
