MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Chloe Bibby scored 19 points and Diamond Miller added 17 to help No. 9 Maryland beat Wisconsin 79-70 on Sunday afternoon for its 10th consecutive victory.

The Terrapins' only loss this season is an 81-72 setback to then-No. 24 Missouri State on Nov. 28.

Sydney Hilliard scored 19 and Julie Pospisilova had 18 for Wisconsin (3-8, 0-8 Big Ten). Imani Lewis added 17 points and 14 rebounds.

Maryland (11-1, 7-0) outrebounded Wisconsin 44-29 and got a career-high 17 rebounds from Mimi Collins, who also scored 13 points. The 6-foot-3 sophomore forward's previous career high in rebounds was 11.

Ashley Owusu added 14 points and Katie Benzan had 12 for Maryland.

The Badgers played their second ranked team in four days. They suffered a 19-point home loss to No. 13 Michigan on Thursday.

Maryland has 24 straight Big Ten victories and has won all nine games it has ever played against Wisconsin.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
