I was shocked by how well he can shoot from the perimeter, and he has a strong game inside, Mississippi Valley State coach Andre Payne said. I know Indiana has a great program. So, when they stepped on the floor, they were going to bring their `A game because they were not going to let another upset happen.POLL IMPLICATIONS: Indiana will square off with a Top 10 team for the second time this season when the No. 5 North Carolina visits Bloomington on Wednesday night.CAUSE FOR CONCERN: Blackmon was hurt in the Hoosiers 68-71 overtime loss to IPFW.

Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. LAS VEGAS -- No. 6 Maryland cruised to a 4-0 start by averaging 102 points and winning by an average of 49 points against inferior opponents.No. 23 Arizona State was supposed to provide the first true yardstick. Only the Terrapins press quickly turned it into another eye-popping rout.Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 20 points and Maryland led by as many as 32 points in the first half in an 83-42 victory over Arizona State on Friday.Its early, but I love the competitiveness, Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. It was a big test for us early to see where were at. Its a great sign.Brionna Jones added 14 points and 10 rebounds and Brianna Fraser scored 11 points for the Terrapins (5-0). They shot 55 percent from the field and used a stifling defense to race to leads of 10-0, 24-4 and 38-6 in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout.Were growing. I dont think were at our peak at all, Walker-Kimbrough said. But you can see that were coming together.The Terrapins hit 13 of their first 17 shots while their press forced Arizona State into a 1-of-17 start from the field with nine turnovers.I love our length, our athleticism, Frese said. Were able to throw a lot of different looks. Thats something weve really been able to build upon as a team. I thought we really made them have to work for everything.Kaila Charles had 10 points and seven rebounds and freshman Destiny Slocum scored 10 points for Maryland.Relli Richardson scored 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting for the Sun Devils (2-2), They shot 28 percent from the field in their second straight loss.Early in the second quarter, Arizona State coach Charli Turner Thorne had taken more timeouts (2) than her team had field goals (1).

But Arizona State proved no match either ahead of December nonconference showdowns against No. 4 Louisville and No. 2 UConn.POLL IMPLICATIONS:Arizona State: The rout could mean a Top 25 exit for a program that was a No. 2 seed in last seasons NCAA Tournament.Maryland: Voters had a tough time judging the Terrapins after playing four low-major teams. Could this dominant victory give them a chance to leapfrog No. 5 Baylor?UPSET COACHTurner Thorne spent a fourth quarter timeout yelling and stomping the floor as her players circled her in silence.I havent been in this situation for many years. You just have to get better, Turner Thorne said. When your senior gets scored on and just jogs down the floor, what does that say? Thats just not a winning mentality. Thats not what we do.UP NEXTArizona State faces St. Johns on Saturday to conclude the two-game, fixed-matchup event at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.Maryland plays Washington State on Saturday to conclude its first trip to Las Vegas since the 1978-79 season.
