ATLANTA — Kim Rogers hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give No. 12 Maryland a 56-53 win over No. 24 Georgia Tech on Thursday night in a game interrupted by a power outage with just over 2 minutes to play.

Rogers' winning shot from the baseline came on an inbounds play with 1.2 seconds left after Georgia Tech had tied the game on a foul shot by Sasha Goodlett with 44.4 seconds remaining.

Lynetta Kizer had 19 points and Alyssa Thomas scored 17 for Maryland (19-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Rogers had just five points prior to the winning 3-pointer and was 0 for 3 from behind the arc previously.

Tyaunna Marshall scored 12 of her 14 points in the second half for Georgia Tech (18-7, 6-3). Alex Montgomery had 13 points and 15 rebounds.

The game was interrupted for 20 minutes while full lighting was restored after an apparent power surge darkened Alexander Memorial Coliseum with 2:12 to play.
