COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The Maryland Women continued their on-court  domination of their opponents this afternoon with a win over the Clemson Tigers that will be a fond memory for many players.  It was a game for the recordbooks for both teams, as Clemson lost by it's largest margin in school history as Maryland closed in on it's own records.

Crystal Langhorne touched Terrapin school history when she tied former teammate Shay Doron to become the second highest scorer in school history.  Her 25 points and 8 rebounds puts her only 38 points away from eclipsing Vicky Bullet's (formerly with the Washington Mystics) record of 1,928 points set in 1989.  Harper scored 27 points and 11 rebounds, a career high for the senior from Elkins Park PA.

With Harper controlling the right side of the paint Crystal Langhorne was free to work the left side.  She overpowered the Tiger defense on nearly every occasion and shot 10-12 (83%), scoring 25 points. Langhorne also led the team in offensive rebounds with 5 and rounded out an additional 3 rebounds on the defensive boards.  Langhorne was also solid defensively and led the team with 4 steals in her 29 minutes of play.

"I know we make each other better," Harper said. "Her being left handed and me being right handed just works out so nicely and we both have our sides of the court.  We just love playing together and it's great."

Kristi Toliver was busy with assists until the second half when she found her mark from beyond the arc.  The junior hit 3 3-pointers and was a perfect 6-6 on the foul line.  Her 2 field goals from close-range came in transition and Toliver ended the evening with 19 points and 10 assists.  She only offered 2 turnovers in her 29 minutes of play.
4 Terrapin players ended in double figures and Laura Harper scored a double-double in their 64 point victory.  The 64 point margin was the most lopsided victory for Maryland in 28 years in ACC play and their second largest margin of victory ever.

"It was a fun game. The exciting part is seeing where we're at now, where we're getting defensively, getting better and better every game," Frese said.

Ashleigh Newman tied a school record by playing her 123rd consecutive game.  Despite several injuries Newman has played in every game since joining the Terrapins in 2004 from Shelbyville HS in Tennessee. "Ashleigh's fought through a lot of adversity and injuries throughout her career and it's a great accomplishment," remarked Maryland Head Coach Brenda Frese. "With so many injuries, her being able to play every game speaks to her toughness."

Maryland has a few days of rest before traveling north to take on the Boston College Eagles on Thursday evening at 7pm.  The Terps return to town and attempt to sell out Comcast for the game against the Duke Blue Devils on Monday, January 14, 2008 at 7pm.
