Camille Powell steals a line from Pat Benatar in a very flattering article about Kristi Toliver in Sunday's Washington Post. Plenty of well-deserved praise for KT, including from basketball legend Nancy Lieberman and well-known TV announcer Debbie Antonelli. And while our readers read it here first, the Post's audience learns that KT was the runaway winner of this week's Women's Basketball Coaches Association poll asking who would you want to take a buzzer-beating shot. No surprise there!

Kristi's ability to "hit 'em with her best shot" (as well as the abilities of all her Maryland teammates) will be put to the test tomorrow afternoon (Sunday) when the Terps host Rutgers at Comcast at 1 PM. (The game is being nationally broadcast on ESPN2.) The Scarlet Knights are known for their tough defense, and last year beat the Terps up in Jersey in a low scoring affair. Sunday's game should be a real battle as one of the top offenses goes toe-to-toe with one of the best defensive teams in D-I. The Terps will need plenty of fan support, so hopefully we'll see you all tomorrow in College Park.

And don't forget: Tomorrow is Maryland's Pink Zone game, helping to raise breast cancer awareness. So for one game only, it's time to forego your usual red and black and WEAR PINK! And also remember that after the game, the Rebounders will be holding their final regular season social. Go Terps!'

Sunday Morning Update . . . Speaking of things that our readers know, Mike Fratto in today's Washington Times chronicles Kristi and Marissa's most recent streak of big time performances, as their Maryland careers (sadly!) are drawing to a close.

Good luck, Terps! I'll be there to watch you beat the H out of Rutgers! :)

Be gentle, guys. Just be gentle. That's all I ask. It's been a rough season for BEastie girls in this neck of the woods.
