COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Alyssa Thomas had 13 points and 14 rebounds, Lexie Brown scored 21 and No. 4 seed Maryland closed the first half with 20 straight points to roll past Army 90-52 Sunday in the opening round of the NCAA women’s tournament.

The Terrapins (25-6) trailed 18-15 before taking control against the 13th-seeded Black Knights (25-8), champions of the Patriot League.

After Thomas capped a 9-0 spurt with two foul shots, Army got one free throw apiece from Kelsey Minato and Aimee Oertner, the last with 4:56 left in the half.

Those would be the Black Knights’ final points before halftime. Army went 10 minutes without a basket until Minato connected early in the second half to end the Black Knights’ 0-for-10 stretch.
