State women: No. 10 Maryland routs Mount St. Mary's in season opener

Junior Tierney Pfirman had 16 points and 11 rebounds off the bench as the No. 10 Maryland women's basketball team defeated visiting Mount St. Mary's, 109-45, Friday in the season opener for both teams.

"My main goal was to go out and have fun," Pfirman said. "When I have fun everything else reveals itself, team work, everything. Going out there and getting my first offensive rebound, that was a pretty big motivator, so I just figured since I got the first one, then why not get 10 more."
