COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — No. 4 Maryland cruised past Wagner 119-56 in the season opener on Tuesday, with the Terrapins falling two points shy of tying their all-time scoring record.
Kaila Charles had 18 points and Stephanie Jones had 17 for Maryland, while Shakira Austin and Ashley Owusu each added 16.
Maryland scored 121 points against Drexel on Dec. 1, 1992.
Wagner freshman Alex Cowan had 25 points and Emilija Krista Grava added 20.
The Terrapins ran off a pair of 17-0 runs in the first two quarters. They ended the first half scoring 13 consecutive points for a 68-17 lead.
The early tipoff produced a lively crowd with several thousand school children in attendance.
Wagner: The overmatched Seahawks face after another tough road game against Butler on Saturday and host Saint Peter’s on Nov. 13. That should give them a better indication of their abilities.
