COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Abby Meyers scored 18 of her 20 first-half points, and Diamond Miller made a huge 3-pointer in the final minute to help No. 20 Maryland, an exhausted UConn team in an 85- 78 to stave off victory over the sixth-placed Huskies on Sunday.

Shyanne Sellers added 19 points for the Terrapins (9-3), who won against UConn for the first time in eight encounters. The Huskies (7-2) lost for the second time in three games despite 25 points from Aaliyah Edwards.

Maryland led 80-76 when Miller connected from across the arc by 35.8 seconds.

UConn will be without former International Player of the Year Paige Buckers, forward Dorka Juhasz and highly acclaimed newcomer Ice Brady. The Huskies also lost top scorer Azzi Fudd last weekend to a knee injury in a loss at Notre Dame, and point guard Nika Muhl was injured in a win against Princeton on Thursday night.

Lou Lopez-Senechal had foot problems. She played on Sunday but committed three fouls in the first half.

The Huskies turned the ball over 14 times in the fourth quarter against Princeton, and that was a problem again on Sunday when UConn had 22 turnovers to Maryland’s five.

The Terps had their own problems offensively – Miller went off the field 0:7 in the first half. UConn erased a 12-point deficit in the second half, but with the game tied at 62 in the fourth half, Meyers threw in a wild left-hand shot while being fouled. She missed the free throw, but the terps rebounded and Sellers made a 3-pointer.

That five-point journey started with an 8-0 run.


UConn: The Huskies can take a lot of positives from this game. The rallies were a problem but when they held the ball they did an impressive job and worked on good shots. UConn shot 53% from the field that day.

Maryland: The win was a big one for the Terps, and it will likely look good on their resume no matter how much injury hampered UConn. Meyers and Sellers did a good job leading the team offensively while Miller struggled, and Miller finished strongly to finish on 17 points.


UConn: The huskies now have a little break, which of course they could use. Their next game is against Florida State next Sunday at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Maryland: The Terps play Purdue Fort Wayne on Wednesday.
