Unlike last year, the Baylor Lady Bears won't be heading into the offseason after a win. Maryland dominated the Lady Bears in the second half winning going away 82-63.
The Lady Bears started off the night not able to hit anything, going 1 for 13 from the floor in the first few minutes. Although they were able to keep it close through most of the first half, they simply seemed outmatched in the second half.
The Big 12's all time leading scorer, Sophia Young, capped off her Baylor career going for 26 points and 8 rebounds. But she was overshadowed on this night by Crystal Langhorne from Maryland, who finished with 34 points and 12 rebounds. Langhorne scored at will all night long, shooting a ridiculous 77% (14 for 18) from the floor.
Baylor's second leading scorer on the night was Jhasmin Player with 8 points, no one other than Young was in double figures. Maryland meanwhile had 3 players in double figures including 15 from Marissa Coleman and 12 from Kristi Toliver.
While Baylor will again suffer major off-season losses with the departure of Sophia Young, Abiola Wabara, and Jordan Davis, Maryland will return its entire starting lineup. It's scary to think about what they can do next year, considering they're not yet done this year.
