Mar 26, 2008 - 5:35 AM COLLEGE PARK, Maryland (Ticker) -- Kristi Toliver had 19 points and seven assists and Marissa Coleman also scored 19 points to lead top-seeded Maryland past eighth-seeded Nebraska, 76-64, in a second-round matchup out of the Spokane Regional on Tuesday.

Crystal Langhorne had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Terrapins (32-3), who will face Vanderbilt in the regional semifinals on Saturday.

Maryland led by as many as 15 in the first half but only held a 34-33 lead at the break.

The Cornhuskers (21-12) tied the contest early in the second half but could never take the lead as the Terrapins slowly started to pull away.

Yvonne Turner's 3-pointer cut the Nebraska deficit to 69-64 with four minutes left, but Maryland ended the game on a 7-0 run to seal the victory as the Cornhuskers missed their last seven shots.

Turner finished with 23 points and six assists to lead Nebraska, which made only 6-of-23 shots from the arc.
