With a jumper midway through the second half against North Carolina in Friday night's ACC Tournament quarterfinals, star Maryland forward Alyssa Thomas has now added another honor to her vast collection in her time as a Terrapin -- all-time leading scorer for the women's basketball program.

Thomas surpassed Crystal Langhorne's program record of 2,247 points Friday night on a pull-up jumper in transition. Maryland trailed by 11 at halftime, but Thomas has spurred a strong run early in the second-half to keep it close.

The senior forward was named to an All-ACC team in each of her four seasons with the Terrapins, and was named ACC Player of the Year an astonishing three straight times (she was the second sophomore ever to win the award when she first received it, in 2012).

Earlier in March, Thomas had her jersey hung up on the rafters at the Comcast Center. She is now less than 25 points away from Juan Dixon's all-time Terrapin record.
