Maryland Starts Quick, Duke Cold

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Duke was going to have to come out and be next to perfect to avoid a quick start from Maryland.

They are nowhere near perfect. Try 1-for-8 from the field.

And that's why Maryland - just overpowering Duke physically and on the blocks - has opened up an early 10-2 lead.

Laura Harper has been big, converting on a three-point play and hitting two other free throws for five early points. Marah Strickland followed a Marissa Coleman steal by hitting a three that gave the Terps their 10 points. Kristi Toliver has the other two points for the Terps.
