COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Alyssa Thomas had 19 points and 11 rebounds for her 14th double-double of the season, and No. 6 Maryland beat Syracuse 77-62 Thursday night to extend its winning streak to 13 games.

Although Thomas led the way, the Terrapins (15-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) received 44 points from their reserves. That included a career-high 18 by 6-foot-3 freshman center Brionna Jones, who also grabbed 10 rebounds.

After letting a 19-point lead shrink to 10 with 14:41 remaining, Maryland used a 13-3 run over the next three minutes to go up 61-41. Jones scored eight points in the surge and Thomas contributed two baskets and a free throw.

Brianna Butler scored 14 and Alexis Peterson had 12 for Syracuse, which lost for the fourth time in five games.
