Any way you look at it, the fourth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team had a wonderful Sunday.
Playing at Cameron Indoor Stadium against a 12th-ranked Duke team they had not defeated on Coach K court since 2000, the Terrapins used their spitfire brand of basketball to walk away with a 76-69 victory, completing a two-game sweep in the regular-season series between these ACC teams.

The Terps (27-2, 11-1 ACC) outrebounded the Devils 43-29 and rode the post play of senior Crystal Langhorne, who scored 14 of her game-high 25 points in the first half.

Her stellar play, combined with that of juniors Kristi Toliver (23 points) and Marissa Coleman (15 points, 11 rebounds) created euphoria among the bunch from College Park, Md., but their on-court feat paled in comparison to the news they received after their afternoon shootaround.
