College Park, MD -- With four players recording double-digit scoring totals and a team haul of 58 rebounds, the Maryland Terrapins put away the High Point Panthers 105-50 Wednesday in College Park. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored a career-high 26 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field in addition to grabbing 10 rebounds.
Teammate Brionna Jones finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds, even with foul trouble limiting her to six minutes of action in the first half. Maryland head coach Brenda Frese commented on the junior center's four personal fouls.
"It's something she's got to be able to play through," she said. "She can't pick up some of these easy fouls. We need her on the court. We can't have those kind of minutes with her on the bench."
Jones took advantage of the extended time she got in the second half (15 minutes), scoring 14 of her points in the last two frames. Walker-Kimbrough, meanwhile, lit it up in the first half; she went to the locker room with 19 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field.
The Terps cracked open the lead in the final periods of the game, with freshman Kiah Gillespie (19 points, 7 rebounds) and redshirt-senior Brene Moseley (13 points, 9 assists) contributing to a well-distributed Maryland offense. Frese's squad didn't slack on defense, either, holding the High Point offense to just six points in the second quarter and 20 in the first half.
"A big thing that coach told us was just being disciplined," Walker-Kimbrough said. "I know it's hard for us to be undisciplined in a game like this because we feel as if we have a size advantage or an athleticism advantage. Maryland basketball starts with defend, rebound, and run."
The Terps will face the University of Detroit at 11 a.m. Friday in College Park.
