Maryland vs. Florida State final score: Seminoles fall to Terrapins, 71-64

USA TODAY Sports

The No. 19 ranked Seminoles made a valiant comeback from an early deficit, but fell just short of catching the 8th ranked Terrapins.

The Florida State women's basketball team trailed early to Maryland, but crawled back into the game before ultimately falling short, 71-64, in College Park Sunday night. The Terrapins outrebounded the Seminoles 48-30, throwing out of balance a game in which both teams shot over 40 percent from the floor. The loss snaps a five-game winning streak for Florida State with their last loss coming almost a month ago to Nebraska.

Chelsea Davis led the Seminoles with 18 points, and Alexia Delusio added 15 points and seven rebounds. Florida State shot 2-of-7 from three point range, but over 41 percent from the floor.

Alyssa Thomas had 20 points and 15 rebounds for eighth ranked Maryland, and Tianna Hawkins chipped in with 17 points.

The loss drops 19th ranked Florida State to 12-2, and 2-1 in the ACC, but the Seminoles have a chance to get back on the right foot on Thursday when they host Wake Forest.
