Maryland's Alyssa Thomas becomes program's all-time leading scorer in rout of Army

Alyssa Thomas made more history yesterday when the 6-foot-2 senior became the basketball program's - men's and women's - all-time leading scorer in Maryland's 90-52 rout of Army in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

Pete Volk of SB Nation's Maryland site Testudo Times has more on the milestone.

With a free throw in the first half of Maryland's first round NCAA Tournament game against Army, senior forward Alyssa Thomas has passed Juan Dixon's school record of 2,269 points, becoming the all-time leading scorer in Terrapin history.

Thomas surpassed Crystal Langhorne's program record of 2,247 points earlier this season, in an ACC Tournament game against North Carolina.

Thomas broke the scoring record during a 29-2 run to end the first half.
