Jasmine Thomas did just about everything she could to win the game for Duke, and she succeeded.

Thomas (pictured) finished with 20 points, including 13 straight in one second-half stretch and the clinching free throw in the closing seconds, giving the No. 6 Blue Devils a 58-57 road victory over a determined Maryland team.

Thomas was the only player in double figures for the Blue Devils (17-3, 5-0 ACC), who have won their first five ACC games in a season for the first time under Joanne P. McCallie as head coach.

Joy Cheek had nine points to go with her 11 rebounds for Duke, which took the lead for good on Bridgette Mitchell's bucket that made it 55-54 with 1:29 left. Cheek added a pair of free throws with 20 seconds left before Thomas added her last one, making moot Anjale Barrett's 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Lori Bjork had 11 points to lead Maryland (14-6, 2-4), which has lost three straight.

Duke will host Florida State on Friday night at 8:30.
