Terps Tourney Hopes In Limbo After Loss

The Terps NCAA tournament chances took a major hit last night they fell to Boston College 83-70.

The NCAA Tournament chances of the Maryland Terrapins (18-10, 5-8 ACC) took a big hit as the Lady Terps fell to the Boston College Eagles (15-13, 6-7 ACC) 83-70 in Chestnut Hill, MA. The Eagles used an early 13-0 to go up 29-21. They would not trail for the rest of the game.

In the second half, the Lady Terps were able to claw to within two points of the Eagles, but never closer. Lynetta Kizer led Maryland with 19 points and also had 5 rebounds, but shot just 5-19 from the field. Diandra Tchatchouang scored 14 points and Anjale Barrett chipped in 11 points for Maryland off the bench.

Boston College shot 43.5% from the field and outrebounded the Terps by a 36-30 margin. They used a balanced attack that saw five players reach double figures. Joclyn Thoman led the Eagles with 18 points. Carolyn Swords recorded a double-double, scoring 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Ayla Brown also snatched 10 rebounds for Boston College.

The loss drops Maryland to ninth in the ACC. They will play the second-place and ninth-ranked Florida State Seminoles (25-4, 11-2 ACC) on Sunday at the Comcast Center in College Park, MD. The game will be the final game of the regular season for both teams before the ACC Tournament. Game time is 3 PM.
