Tar Heels hold off Terrapin women, 84-71

January 29, 2007|From the Associated Press

COLLEGE PARK, MD. — Ivory Latta scored a season-high 32 points, and No. 2-ranked North Carolina extracted a measure of revenge against No. 3 Maryland with an 84-71 victory Sunday night at sold-out Comcast Center.

The crowd of 17,950 was the largest to watch a women's basketball game in Atlantic Coast Conference history, surpassing the 17,243 that viewed the Terrapins' loss to Duke in February 2005.

Latta made four three-pointers and the Tar Heels (23-0, 7-0 ACC) made eight of their first nine shots of the second half to open a 55-35 lead with 15 minutes left. The Terrapins (21-2, 5-2) cut the deficit to one before falling back. Last season, North Carolina's only losses -- including a Final Four defeat -- came against Maryland.
