The big local battle between the established program and the up-and-comer went to the up-and-comer, emphatically. The Georgetown Hoyas embarrassed the Maryland Terrapins in the second round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, defeating Maryland 79-57 on the Terps' home floor at the Comcast Center. The win means the Hoyas will advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA bracket for the first time since 1993.
The Hoyas scored 13 of the game's first 14 points, went on an 11-2 run in the first half to open up a double-digit lead and never looked back. Ta'Shauna Rogers led the way with 34 points and nine rebounds, completely dominating the game. Georgetown was on fire from beyond the arc, hitting 13 of 25.
The Terps suffered their first double-digit loss of the season in the defeat. They lost forward Diandra Tchatchouang to injury early in the game, and never recovered.
The No. 5 seeded Hoyas now move on to face top-seeded Connecticut, who once again rolled over teams, but "only" defeated Georgetown by 10 and 16 this season.
