Indianapolis (AP) - Seventh-ranked Maryland’s scoring depth and impressive skill were once again on display in a 104-84 rout of Iowa to claim a second consecutive Big Ten Tournament championship on Saturday.

Seven of eight players who scored early had more than one basket.

Coach Brenda Frese’s Terrapins (24-2) have reached this title game in each of the seven seasons since Maryland joined the conference, and won six of seven regular-season titles.

Chloe Bibby led the Terps with 21 points, including 11, with three 3-pointers, in the opening quarter.
