COLLEGE PARK, MD. - Preseason AP All-American and two-time defending ACC Player of the Year Alyssa Thomas posted her third career triple-double as eighth ranked Maryland ran past Siena 105-49 at the Comcast Center.

Thomas tallied 12 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists for Maryland (9-1) which won its seventh straight and improved to 103-6 all-time in non-conference home games here at the Comcast Center.

Siena (4-4) falls to 0-14 all-time against Associated Press Top-25 teams and 0-8 in Atlantic Coast Conference games.

Maryland ran like a well-oiled machine, dishing out 30 assists on 39 field goals. The Terrapins excelled in transition, turning 29 Siena turnovers into 46 points while adding 30 fastbreak points. Maryland shot 60% (39-65) from the field and 66.7% (10-15) from three.

Freshman guard Brianna Logan led Siena with 10 of her career-high 12 points in the first half. Kelsey Booth added nine, connecting on a trio of three-pointers.

Maryland raced out to a 16-2 lead and led throughout. But the feisty Saints went on an early 9-0 run to get as close as six, 20-14 at the 11:52 mark.

Siena was still within nine, 32-23 at the 6:40 mark following consecutive threes from Clara Sole Anglada, but the Terrapins closed the half on a 16-3 run and cruised from there.

Laurin Mincy led six Terrapins in double figures with 21 points off the bench on 7-11 shooting and 4-5 from beyond the arc. Fellow reserve Brene Moseley hit all four of her shots in adding 13 points and five assists off a Maryland bench which contributed 58 points.

The Saints don't play again for 12 days as the College's final exams period begins Wednesday. Siena concludes non-conference action on Saturday, December 21st at the ARC against Binghamton at 2 p.m on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel. The first 300 fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Ali Jaques bobblehead doll.
