Hawkins, Kizer lead Maryland’s 70-59 win over UMBC



CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Tianna Hawkins had 19 points and 18 rebounds, Lynetta Kizer scored 12 points in her return from a suspension and No 10. Maryland beat the University of Maryland, Baltimore County 70-59 on Saturday night.

Kizer, who missed Maryland’s first three games for an unspecified violation of team rules, entered the game midway through the first half. She immediately provided a physical lift for the Terrapins, but the 6-foot-4 senior center looked out of synch at times.

Brene Moseley added 14 points for the Terrapins (4-0), who improved to 10-0 all-time against the Retrievers (2-2).

UMBC, the defending America East regular season champions, got 14 points each from Erin Brown and Michelle Kurowski and 12 from Lauren Chase.

The Retrievers fell to 0-20 all-time against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents and saw a 12-game home winning streak end.
