COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The telling numbers, located in the bottom right hand corner of the score sheet, did not go unnoticed by Maryland coach Brenda Frese.

In a 76-49 rout of Wake Forest on Thursday night, the sixth-ranked Terrapins' reserves outscored the Demon Deacons' bench 45-14.

"I love that stat," Frese said. "We're constantly saying, 'On any given night, be ready.' Our bench was fantastic."

Freshman Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored a team-high 15 points in a reserve role and backup guard Chloe Pavlech added 10 to help the Terrapins roll to their 13th consecutive victory.

Alyssa Thomas had 11 points, five rebounds and six assists for Maryland, ending her run of 13 successive double-doubles. Alicia DeVaughn contributed 11 points, and the Terrapins had assists on 23 of their 31 baskets.

"I thought our guard play really moved the ball, shared the ball," Frese said. "I thought we had a really nice inside-outside game."

The Terrapins (14-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) led by 15 at halftime and stretched the margin to 21 with 14 minutes left en route to their 16th consecutive win over the Demon Deacons (9-6, 0-2).

Eleven Maryland players were on the court for at least 12 minutes, and nine players scored.

"We're sharing the basketball, making really easy looks for one another," Frese said.

Dearica Hamby had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Demon Deacons, who have dropped two in a row following a five-game winning streak. Chelsea Douglas, who scored 48 two games earlier against Florida International, went 1 for 12 from the floor and finished with seven points.

But it was Maryland's depth on the offensive end that made the difference.
