RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Myisha Goodwin-Coleman scored all 16 of her points after halftime, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:51 left, to help No. 18 North Carolina State beat No. 8 Maryland 72-63 on Thursday night.

Markeisha Gatling added 15 points for the Wolfpack (19-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who beat the Terrapins for the first time in four years. It also marked N.C. State's first home win against a top-10 opponent since beating then-No. 2 North Carolina in February 2007.

First-year coach Wes Moore has now led the Wolfpack to wins against four ranked opponents, though this one didn't come until Goodwin-Coleman's 3-pointer started an 11-2 run that broke a 57-all tie.

Freshman Lexie Brown scored a season-high 20 points for the Terps (16-4, 4-3), while Alyssa Thomas had 18 points - though she went scoreless for more than 11 minutes in the second half as the Wolfpack pushed in front.
