2012 NCAA Women's Tournament, Maryland Vs. Texas A&M Final Score: Terrapins Complete Comeback, Win 81-74

The Maryland Lady Terrapins have punched their ticket to the Elite Eight with an impressive 81-74 come-from-behind win against the Texas A&M Aggies Sunday afternoon. The Terps used a 21-4 run to end the game to propel themselves to the victory.

After a slow start, the Terps put together an impressive second half, led by Alyssa Thomas and Lauin Mancy each had a game-high 21 points while Mancy was able to pull down 12 rebounds while shooting 7-for-8 from the floor. Maryland took the lead for good on a Lynetta Kizer layup that made the score 75-74 with 3:29 to play.

The hot shooting seen from the Aggies in the first half was nowhere to be found in the second half, and their lack of an inside game doomed them. Alexia Standish had a team-high 19 points to lead the five Aggies that reached double figures scoring.

Maryland will take on the winner of the Notre Dame-St. Bonaventure game later on Sunday.
