Well this will be a game the Maryland women won't soon forget... 64 point margin of victory. It's the biggest in Clemson Tiger history and the largest ACC margin of victory for the Terps since they played Wake Forest back in 1980, and the second most lopsided win for the team in the history of the program. They shot 73% in the second half as nearly every shot managed to find the basket. Even diving throws into what seemed like oblivion fell in.

Laura Harper is just amazing. 11 rebounds and 27 points. She's now the 2nd leading scorer in Maryland school history (she past former teammate Shay Doron this evening). Vicky Bullet (now with the Mystics) is the current record holder (from back in 1989) and she's 38 points ahead of Harper. It was great if Harper could become the scoring leader during the upcoming Duke game on Monday. I suppose it's possible given that we play BC on Thursday. 19 points per game? Maybe...

Crystal Langhorne is also ridiculous. Harper's the righty and Langhorne is on the left. Between the two they control the post position. She was the second leading scorer this afternoon with 25 points. Toliver came behind her with 19. It took Toliver awhile to start shooting (she mostly just dished in the first half) but when she did she notched the points pretty quickly. She hit 3 3-pointers and had 10 assists overall.

Ashleigh Newman played her in her 123rd consecutive game, tying a team record.

Lots of fun shooting the game and writing the article tonight. Please go take a look over at the DC Sports Box.
