COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Chloe Bibby scored 22 points and grabbed seven rebounds with her Australian parents in attendance, and on her own bobblehead night, to lead No. 17 Maryland to a 72-55 win over Rutgers Thursday.

After falling behind 19-9 after one quarter, Rutgers rallied to cut its deficit to 30-26 at intermission, but Maryland began to push the tempo in the third quarter, going on a 14-2 run to build a 55-42 lead heading into the fourth.
