COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Crystal Langhorne had 31 points and 15
rebounds, and Marissa Coleman scored Maryland's first five points
in the second overtime to carry the fourth-ranked Terrapins to a
harrowing 99 to 95 victory over Georgia Tech today.
Laura Harper scored 24 and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds for
Maryland (22-1, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Terrapins
overcame 25 turnovers to earn their 12th straight win in a game
that featured 23 lead changes and 18 ties.
Alex Montgomery scored 26 and Janie Mitchell and Iasia Hemingway
had 20 apiece for the Yellow Jackets (16-3, 3-2).
Coleman started the second overtime with a basket, but Jacqua
Williams answered with a three-pointer for Georgia Tech to make it
95 to 94. After Coleman sank three free throws, Mitchell misfired
before Langhorne clinched it by making two free throws with 4.1
seconds to go.
