LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kaila Charles scored the go-ahead basket with 2:20 remaining, and Destiny Slocum followed with seven points to help No. 5 Maryland beat No. 7 Louisville 78-72 on Thursday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
The Terrapins (7-0) seemed in control with a 62-53 lead entering the fourth quarter before Louisville rallied to lead twice, including 67-65 with 3:15 left. Charles followed Brionna Jones' layup with another before Slocum's three-point play provided a 72-67 edge that she added to with four more free throws.
Shatori Walker-Kimbrough (26 points) made two free throws with 4 seconds left to seal Maryland's victory in the first regular-season meeting between the schools. Jones added 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Terps, who made 23 of 28 from the foul line.
Asia Durr scored 20 points and Myisha Hines-Allen 16 for Louisville (6-2), which lost its second game against a Top 5 team.
