TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Laurin Mincy scored 23 points, Alyssa Thomas added 21 points and 10 rebounds and Tiana Hawkins had 20 points and 13 rebounds as No. 5 Maryland remained unbeaten with a 91-70 rout of Florida State on Monday night.

Hawkins was 7 of 7 from the floor in the first half and had nine rebounds for Maryland (14-0, 1-0 ACC), which won the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Alexa Deluzio tied a career high with 23 points, and Cierra Bravard added 14 points for Florida State (8-7, 0-1).

Maryland trailed 19-18 but went on a 10-0 run, capped by Mincy’s 3-pointer with 9:01 left in the first half, to pull away.

The Terrapins are off to their best start since opening 18-0 in 2006-07.

Maryland handed Florida State its worst home loss in nearly five years. North Carolina defeated the Seminoles 80-59 on Feb. 12, 2007.
