Alyssa Thomas scored a career-high 30 points and added 12 rebounds to lead No. 8 Maryland to an 86-61 win over host Boston College on Thursday night.

Tianna Hawkins grabbed her 1,000th career rebound in the win.

Hawkins scored 15 points, Malina Howard had 11, and Alicia DeVaughn added 10 points and eight rebounds for Maryland (22-4, 13-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Thomas notched her 16th double double of the season, which leads the ACC.

With four rebounds, Hawkins became the third woman — and the fourth player, male or female — in school history to grab 1,000 rebounds. Only Crystal Langhorne, Marissa Coleman and Len Elmore previously had reached that mark.

Kristen Doherty scored 18 points for Boston College (10-16, 4-11). Kerri Shields scored seven points to become the 22nd player in BC history to reach 1,000.

With the win, Maryland remained in second place in the ACC, behind Duke and ahead of North Carolina — the only ACC teams to beat the Terps this season.

James Madison 79, Towson 45: The host Dukes (18-8, 12-2 Colonial Athletic Association) were powered by four double-digit scorers as they defeated the Tigers (9-17, 3-12).

Nyree Williams and Tanisha McTiller each scored 10 points for Towson, which saw its two-game winning streak end.

Marymount 61, Salisbury 46: The visiting Sea Gulls (15-12) took an early lead and held on until halftime before falling behind in the second half to the top-seeded Saints (22-4) in a Capital Athletic Conference semifinal.

Katie McGahagan finished with a game-high 18 points for Salisbury, which scored the first four points of the game.

Leading 4-1, Salisbury went on a 13-2 run over a four-minute span.
