Seminoles' depth overwhelms Terrapins

TALLAHASSEE — Florida State had too much balance and too deep a bench for Maryland.

Five players scored in double figures and reserves Chelsea Davis and Chasity Clayton combined for 26 points Sunday to spark the 15th-ranked Seminoles to a 72-66 win over the No. 16 Terrapins.

Davis and Clayton outscored Maryland's bench players 26-7.

"I don't think that anybody cares who gets the credit," Seminoles coach Sue Semrau said. "They just go to work and they work together."

FSU (22-5, 10-2) will win at least a share of its third straight ACC title with victories at Miami on Thursday and at home against Clemson on Sunday. FSU is tied for first in the conference with Miami and Duke.

Alyssa Thomas led Maryland (21-6, 7-5 ACC) with a career-high 26 points.

UF 78, MISS. ST. 63: Lanita Bartley had a career-high 23 points and eight rebounds and Jennifer George tied her career best with 21 points as the host Gators (15-13, 5-9 SEC) snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Bulldogs (10-16, 2-12).
