Maryland, which moved over from the Atlantic Coast Conference, went 18-0 against Big Ten opponents this season, marking the school's first perfect conference basketball season.
Brionna Jones had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 11 points as the Terrapins (27-2) pulled away in the second half for their 21st straight win.
