Brenda Behind Bars. When asked by Jessica Garrison of CSTV.com how her life has changed after the national title, Coach Brenda Frese revealed that she is "...now receiving letters from people in prison." And, in this Q&A from Garrison's interesting interview, Brenda talks about the origins of the team's motto:

JG: This year, you all thrived on the "Overtime is our time" motto. Any early front-runners for this year's motto?
Frese: [laughs] No, not yet. It kind of develops and unfolds. That didn't really develop until our second overtime. A fan had made a sign, and our kids were like, "Did you see that sign!?" They were like, "Yeah, we do play harder in overtime!" It sorta took on a life of its own. [Note to Brenda: Actually, Coach, it was after your third overtime! That "fan" with the sign? Yes, you guessed it, that "fan" was a BasketCase.]

Just so you're accurate, the third overtime was the Wake Forest game in Winston-Salem...at the time, many Terp fans were a bit disappointed that Maryland, despite its considerable talent, was being taken into OT by notably weaker teams. (Of course, that perception changed a few days later in Chapel Hill.)

Anyway, you should have copyrighted the phrase, a la "Threepeat."
