COLLEGE PARK, MD-Shay Doron scored 22 points and Delvona Oliver added 14 in leading Maryland to a 68-55 win over Clemson in an Atlantic Coast Conference women’s basketball game at College Park, MD Thursday night.

With the win, Maryland improves to 13-7 overall and 5-4 in the ACC. Clemson falls to 15-4 overall, and 5-3 in league play. The loss snaps a four game winning streak for the Lady Tigers, having won four league contests in a row.

Doron was 7-13 from the field. She also had seven rebounds, six assists and four steals. She was 3-3 from the three-point line in leading Maryland to a 7-12 performance from the three-point line.

Clemson was led in scoring by Lakeia Stokes with 17 points. She was 7-18 from the field and finished with five rebounds. She also had three assists and three steals. Julie Aderhold ws the other double digit performer for the Lady Tigers as she had 14 points.

The Lady Tigers had a 42-41 lead in the second half with 10:53 left in the game as Kanetra Queen hit two free throws. From this point, Maryland went on a 25-9 run the next 9:40 to take a 66-51 lead with 1:13 left on the clock. Doran had eight points in this Terrapin run. After Queen’s two free throws with 10:53 left, the Lady Tigers only scored two points in the next 5:34, a layup by Stokes with 9:20 left. Stokes broke the Clemson drought with a three pointer with 5:19 left.

Maryland won the battle of the boards 37-34. The Terrapins had 20 offensive rebounds in the game. Oliver, Shay, and Kalika France all had seven rebounds each in the game. Clemson was led in rebounding by Maggie Slosser with eight.

The Tigers were troubled with turnovers as Clemson committed 23 compared to Maryland’s 17. The Terrapins scored 26 points off of Clemson’s 23 turnovers and the Tigers only scored eight points off of Maryland’s 17.

“The key of the game was Maryland’s offensive rebounds,” said Clemson Head Coach Jim Davis. “Their ability to score points off our turnovers killed us tonight. You can’t win giving up that many offensive rebounds. Our opponents should not get that many offensive rebounds in two games much less in one game.”

Clemson will play host to Duke Monday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Lady Tigers’ next action.
