The Tar Heels also lost the ground-ball battle 29-19 and committed more turnovers, 18-14.

Levy said Maryland's second-half run was typical of the Terps.

"We didn't have the ball," she said. "We were losing draws, and Maryland gets momentum and breaks games open in the unsettled situations. It wasn't lack of offense; it was lack of having the ball."
