Maryland found itself locked in a duel with historic ramifications. Only once had a No. 1 seed lost in the opening round, and with 17 minutes left in the game, the mighty Terrapins were in danger of becoming the second such victim.
Marissa Coleman scored 13 points, Laura Harper and Shay Doron each had 12 and No. 8 Maryland never trailed in a 69-38 rout of Coppin State on Tuesday night.
