COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Coretta Brown hit a driving layup at the buzzer as No. 7 North Carolina rallied from an 11-point deficit in the second half to defeat Maryland 83-82 Monday night.

Nikita Bell scored a career-high 30 for the Tar Heels, who trailed 55-44 early in the second half and 79-74 with 1:58 left.

Chrissy Fisher had 20 points, Renneika Razor 19 and Terri Daniels 18 for the Terrapins. Razor put Maryland up 82-81 with a driving layup with nine seconds left, and she was fouled on the play.

Razor missed the free throw, setting the stage for Brown's winner from the left side of the lane.

Down 79-74, the Tar Heels pulled even with 1:25 remaining on a 3-pointer by Brown and two free throws by Bell. After a Maryland miss, Bell made a layup to put North Carolina up.

Brown and Candace Sutton scored 17 each.

NO. 9 LA. TECH 97, CENTENARY 47: Tina Frierson and Sultra Harding scored 16 each to lead six players in double figures as the host Techsters won their 13th in a row.

NO. 10 PURDUE: Forward Shereka Wright was cleared to play despite a broken left hand. Coach Kristy Curry said she wasn't sure whether Wright would be able to play against Illinois on Thursday.
