COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Alyssa Thomas had 22 points and 14 rebounds for her NCAA-leading 15th double-double, and No. 6 Maryland withstood a strong challenge from Georgia Tech in a 92-81 victory Sunday.

The Terrapins trailed at halftime and led by only four points with 8:50 left. But with Thomas leading the way, Maryland (16-1, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) earned its 14th consecutive win and beat the Yellow Jackets (12-5, 2-3) for the fifth straight time.

Thomas went 7 for 14 from the floor and made eight of nine free throws, including a pair that launched a 6-0 run that made it 75-65 with 5:33 to go.

Lexie Brown scored 15 for the Terrapins and Alicia DeVaughn added 13, going 11 for 12 at the line. Maryland committed a season-high 23 turnovers, but made 35 foul shots compared to 15 for Georgia Tech.
