No. 8 Maryland Outlasts Drexel 69-63

College Park, Md. (AP) — Alyssa Thomas scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to help No. 8 Maryland outlast Drexel 69-63 on Monday night.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 10 of her 12 points for Maryland (5-1) after halftime to help the Terrapins survive an exceptional second-half effort from the Dragons (2-3).

Brene Moseley added five of her eight points in the final two minutes to help the Terps assure itself of a three-game win streak ahead of a weekend trip to Puerto Rico for the San Juan Shootout.

The Terps’ only loss this season came to top-ranked Connecticut at home on Nov. 15.

Alexis Smith scored 19 points and Sarah Curran added 16 points for Drexel (2-3), both career highs for the pair of freshmen.

The Dragons shot 7-of-12 from 3-point range after halftime to claw back into the game.
