Final Stats

COLLEGE PARK, MD – The Clemson women’s basketball team suffered its ninth straight loss on Thursday night, losing 89-63 to the fourth-ranked Maryland Terrapins in College Park, MD. The Terps improved to 25-3 on the year with a 12-2 mark in conference play, while the loss dropped the Lady Tigers to 8-19 overall and 2-11 in the ACC.

Amanda Frist led the Clemson team with 16 points while D’Lesha Lloyd added 12 and Susan Yenser tallied 11 points. Frist and Lloyd tied for team-high honors with six rebounds apiece and Frist also blocked four shots in the effort.

Maryland’s Marissa Coleman led all scorers with 20 points, shooting 5-7 from three-point range. Crystal Langhorne had 16 points for the Terps while pulling down a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Terrapins began the game on an 11-0 run before Clemson scored eight unanswered points of its own. White and Yenser hit back-to-back threes to cut the early lead to three points at the 16:11 and 15:50 marks.

Maryland quickly went back ahead by 10 points on one of Coleman’s five three pointers of the half. The Terps then extended their lead to 18 points at 40-22 on another Coleman three with just over six minutes remaining in the half. The advantage hit 20 points at the 3:31 mark, but those were just two of four points Maryland would score the remainder of the period, allowing the Lady Tigers to narrow the gap to 15 points at the break.

Clemson outscored the Terrapins by a 7-3 margin to open the second half, holding Maryland to just seven points during an eight-minute stretch going back to the first half. The Terps regained control shortly afterwards, however, and went back ahead by 22 at the 12:53 mark on a lay-up by Aurelie Noirez.

Maryland maintained its lead for the rest of game, as the Lady Tigers were unable to narrow the gap to less than 18 points during the second period. The Terps went on to win by a final score of 89-63.

Clemson will conclude the 2005-06 regular season on the road against the Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville, VA on Sunday. Tipoff is set for 2:00 PM at University Hall.
