February 6, 1993

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) _ Jessie Hicks came off the bench to score nine of her career-high 28 points in a key 13-2 first-half run as seventh-ranked Maryland beat Duke 90-71 Friday night in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Duke (9-10, 0-9) has lost four in a row and 10 straight in the ACC, dating back to last season.

The seventh-ranked Terrapins (15-4, 7-3) started miserably, turning the ball over on five of their first 10 possessions, and managing only six points in the opening 6:11.

Hicks, a 6-foot-4 senior from Richmond, Va., playing in a reserve role for just the second time in the last 49 games, came into the game with 12:19 remaining in the first half and Maryland leading 6-5. She hit one of two free throws to break an 8-all tie 70 seconds later, then hit three baskets and a free throw during a 54-second stretch to give the Terrapins 23-15 lead with 7:06 left in the half.

Maryland led by as many as 16 points before taking a 41-28 lead at the intermission.

The Blue Devils pulled within 59-51 on a basket by Nicole Johnson with 8:55 left in the game, but Maryland went on a 15-5 run to open a 74-56 margin with 4:52 remaining.

Malissa Boles added 17 points and a career-high nine rebounds for Maryland, while Bonnie Rimkus contributed 16 points.

Dana McDonald led Duke with 17 points, while Carey Kauffman and Zeki Blanding each added 10 points.
