Small nets 21, five Terps hit double figures in rout of Mount St. Mary’s

The Maryland Terrapins hosted the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers on Wednesday night, the home team rolled to an easy 97-57 win. Maryland narrative Katrice Dickson led the way for the visitors with 16 points. Five players scored in double-figures for the Terps, led by Ieshia Small with 21 points off the bench. Maryland only had 8 players at their disposal due to post player Breanna Fraser being ruled out with an ankle injury.

The Terps used a dominating first quarter to set the tone for the rest of the evening, outscoring Mount St. Mary’s 37-6 in the period. Things were a bit closer over the next three quarters, but the damage was done with that strong start. At one point the Terps held a 46 point lead with 3:05 left in the fourth quarter, but credit to the visitors for maintaining their strong effort for the entire game.

Maryland had an advantage from a size and athleticism stand point and used it on the glass, winning that battle 47-31. Making a living on the offensive glass, pulling down 20 rebounds.

The Terps will host George Washington on Friday at the Xfinity Center. That should be a good matchup between contrasting styles in that Maryland loves to run and GW only wants to do it in spurts. Turnovers will be key and the Terps have to do a better job of avoiding the unforced variety.
