Maryland Terrapins head coach Brenda Frese led her team to its third Big Ten victory of the season Sunday, this one coming in her home state of Iowa.

In front of a crowd of over 7,500 people, the Terps defeated the Hawkeyes 76-56, ending Iowa's streak of 25 home wins. Maryland jumped out to an early 11-3 advantage and never looked back - or lost the lead - after that.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough had another solid performance for the Terps, finishing with a game-high, 19 points to accompany four rebounds and three assists. Brionna Jones also did her part, earning a double-double with 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting and 11 rebounds.

Kristen Confroy went 3-for-4 from three-point range and ended with 11 points. The sophomore also had five rebounds and played for all but one minute of the game. As a team, Maryland shot close to 47% from the field.

Ally Disterhoft and Megan Gustafson led the way for the Hawkeyes with 14 points apiece. The Maryland defense restricted Iowa's long range shooting to just 18.2% on the game.

Terps freshman Brianna Fraser, went 4-of-6 from the field to contribute nine points in 15 minutes off the bench.

Maryland looks to secure another win when they take on Michigan, Thursday, Jan. 14th in Ann Arbor.
