BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Sydney Parrish scored 18 points and No. 6 Indiana's defense stifled No. 9 Maryland in a 68-61 win.

Maryland guard Diamond Miller led a late fourth-quarter charge, scoring 12 of her 19 points in the fourth quarter as the Terrapins (13-4, 4-2 Big Ten) closed an eight-point deficit.

But after Miller's layup tied the game at 50, Indiana (15-1, 4-1) responded with four different players scoring in a 9-0 run that put the game away.

Maryland shot 37% from the field and 6 for 18 from beyond the arc, while Indiana shot 51% and 6 for 15 from 3-point range.

Indiana outscored Maryland 16-7 in the second quarter alone, in part due to a 9-0 run midway through that started with a Parrish 3-pointer. Maryland missed five shots and two free throws in that quarter, shooting 27% from the floor and scoring just 7 points for a season-low.

The Terrapins entered the night averaging 80 points per game and were second in the Big Ten in 3-point shooting. The Terps were also second to last in the Big Ten in turnovers, but the Hoosiers' defense had little problem forcing turnovers. Indiana stole the ball 12 times, led by four steals from Grace Berger and Chloe Moore-McNeil. Parrish added three steals herself before fouling out near the end of the night.

Berger scored 11 points and added 8 assists in her first game back at Assembly Hall after missing time due to a knee injury she suffered in November.

BIG PICTURE

Maryland: The Terrapins snapped a six-game win streak that included a victory over then-No. 6 UConn.

Indiana: The Hoosiers picked up a big win in a schedule that doesn't get any easier. Three of their next four games come against ranked opponents, and only their match against No. 3 Ohio State on Jan. 26 is at home.
