COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Alyssa Thomas had 12 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists for her third career triple-double as No. 8 Maryland cruised to a 105-49 victory over Siena on Monday night.

Lauren Mincy scored 21 points and Brene Moseley added 13 _ season highs for both _ to help the Terrapins (9-1) win their eighth straight.

Maryland had its highest scoring output of the season, and reached the 100-point mark for the second time in four games to begin a five-game homestand.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough added 13 points as six Terps scored in double digits.

Brianna Logan scored 12 for the Saints (4-4), who kept it close for most of the first half before wearing down after the break.

Siena had not allowed more than 70 points in a game this season before Monday, and entered yielding around 62 points per game, a mark Maryland reached with 14:20 remaining.

After jumping to an early 16-2 lead keyed by five points and an assist from Katie Rutan, Maryland withstood the Saints' 10-2 run capped by Logan's 3-pointer from the left wing to cut it to 22-17.

Later, Clara Sole Anglada twice cut Sienna's deficit to nine with 3s, the latter making it 32-23. But Maryland responded with a 24-3 run that stretched into the second half.

Walker-Kimbrough's inside basket off Lexie Brown's feed made it 48-26 at halftime and Thomas' turnaround jumper made it 56-26.

Siena's Meghan Donahue finally answered with an inside basket on the Saints' next possession, ending a stretch of 9:47 without a field goal.

But Maryland kept pouring it on, stretching the lead beyond 40 on Moseley's two free throws to make it 73-32, and beyond 50 when Walker Kimbrough's jumper made it 89-38.

The Terrapins shot 60 percent (39 for 65) from the field and 67 percent (10 of 15) from 3-point range.
