Maryland 74, MICHIGAN STATE 49
Michigan State's Klarissa Bell didn't score a single point. Maryland's Alyssa Thomas finished with 28. As much as anything, that explains what happened Monday night when the Spartans were eliminated from the NCAA tournament. Their top offensive player this season remained in a slump, while the Terrapins' top threat dominated in a 74-49 victory that advanced Maryland to the round of 16. Becca Mills and Annalise Pickrel scored 12 points for the fifth-seeded Spartans (25-9). RECAP

ILLINOIS 62, Eastern Illinois 54
Four Illini players scored in double figures and held Eastern Illinois to one field goal in the final 3:45 as Illinois beat the Panthers 62-54 in a second-round WNIT game at the Assembly Hall on Monday, giving head coach Matt Bollant his 300th career win. Karisma Penn led the Illini with 19 points, Amber Moore added 16, Ivory Crawford had 11 and Adrienne GodBold scored 10 as Illinois broke the school record for turnovers forced in a season, causing 22 EIU miscues. The Illini (18-13) survive and advance to the WNIT round of 16, where they will face Toledo (29-3) at 6 p.m. CT in Savage Arena on Toledo, Ohio. It is the fourth time in school history that Illinois has advanced to the third round of the WNIT, also accomplishing the feat in 2007, 2008 and 2010. RECAP
