 Durham,  NC  (Sports Network) -  Chelsea Gray posted 28  points to guide No. 5
 Duke to a 71-56 win over seventh-ranked Maryland on Monday.
 
 Tricia  Liston gave  17 points and six rebounds while Elizabeth Williams added
 16 points and 10 boards for the Blue Devils (22-1, 12-0 ACC), who have won six
 straight since losing to Connecticut on Jan. 21.
 
 Alyssa  Thomas had 14  points with 12 rebounds and Katie Rutan added 14 points
 for the Terrapins (19-4, 10-2), who had a nine-game winning streak snapped.
 
 After  the score was tied early, the Blue Devils scored six straight points to
 take a lead they never gave back for the rest of the first half.
 
 A  7-0  run later  in the  half gave Duke  its first  double-digit lead of the
 night,  but the Terrapins were able to use a 6-0 run later on to trail by just
 three, 31-28, after the first 20 minutes.
 
 A Rutan 3-pointer two minutes into the second half tied the game at 33-33, but
 Gray answered with a 3-pointer of her own.
 
 Chloe  Pavlech put in a 3-pointer with just under 11 minutes to play that gave
 Maryland  a 44-42 lead,  but Gray again countered with a 3-ball to spark a 9-0
 Duke  run that Williams  capped with a layup for a 51-44 lead with under seven
 minutes left.
 
 Maryland  got back  within five after Tianna  Hawkins put in a layup with five
 minutes to go, but Duke put the contest away by scoring the next eight points.
