Alyssa Thomas’ 16 points led the way for the No. 15 Terps as they routed the visiting No. 11 Tar Heels 88-65, allowing no payback for their first-round ousting of UNC from last season’s ACC Tournament.

Diandra Tchatchouang added 13 points, Lynetta Kizer and Alicia DeVaughn 12 each and Laurin Mincy added 10 points for the Terps (16-3, 3-2 ACC).

Italee Lucas led all scorers with 17 points for UNC (17-3, 3-2), which is 3-3 over its last six games. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt added 11 points and Chay Shegog 10 for the Tar Heels.

UNC’s next game is at home Friday night against Virginia.
