Maryland women beat Texas 69-64 to reach Sweet 16

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Alyssa Thomas scored all 16 of her points in the second half, and Maryland squeezed past cold-shooting Texas 69-64 Tuesday night to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA women’s tournament for the third consecutive year.

The fourth-seeded Terrapins (26-6) next face Tennessee, the No. 1 seed in the Louisville Regional. Maryland is 23-8 in the tournament under coach Brenda Frese and has reached the round of 16 in six of her 12 seasons at the helm.

Texas trailed by 11 points with 9:24 left, but an 8-0 run cut the deficit to 65-64 with 43 seconds left. After Maryland’s 16th turnover of the game, Chassidy Fussell missed a 3-point try and Maryland’s Laurin Mincy made two free throws for a three-point lead.

Nekia Jones then bounced a 3-point try off the rim for the Longhorns, and Thomas clinched the victory by sinking two foul shots with 8 seconds to go.
