TERPS TESTED AGAINST JAMES MADISON
Maryland's 12-11 come-from-behind overtime victory against fifth-ranked James Madison on April 3 tested the Terps in more than one way.

However, against the Dukes, Maryland found itself trailing late in the second half until Christie Jenkins tied the scored with 3:51 remaining, and eventually send the game into overtime. After taking a 3-1 early lead, the Terps hit their worst scoring drought of the season, as they went without a goal for 27:20 and missed 18 straight shots.
