In Maryland's first season in the Big Ten Conference, the Terrapins women's basketball team advanced to the Final Four. But the road ended Sunday night as Maryland fell to perennial power UConn, 81-58. Brionna Jones led the Terrapins with 14 points.
Breanna Stewart scored 25 points and Morgan Tuck added 24 for UConn, who are now one win away from a third straight national championship. UConn will face Notre Dame for the title on Tuesday night in a rematch of last season's championship game.
Lexie Brown added 12 points for Maryland. Maryland's Brown had some extra support at the game as her father, former NBA slam dunk champion, Dee Brown was in attendance. He is an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings and was able to skip their game Sunday and see his daughter play for the first time this season. He was sitting near former Celtics teammate Pervis Ellison, whose daughter Aja also plays for the Terrapins.
Former NFL star Donovan McNabb was also in the crowd cheering on his niece Kia Nurse, who is a freshman at UConn. Read the full AP recap here.
The fourth-ranked Terrapins (34-2) has made the Final Four for the third time under head coach Brenda Frese (2006, 2014, 2015).
