A Lucky Number
Congratulations are in order again
today for Maryland's
super frosh, Alyssa Thomas
, who was named ACC Rookie of the Week once again
-- the final time the honor will be awarded this season.
This makes a total of 1-2-3-4-5-6-7, SEVEN times that Alyssa has been singled out as the ROW this season, breaking the "old" Maryland record of six that Alyssa set herself just last week (which broke the previous record of five shared by Crystal Langhorne and Marissa Coleman).
How special is this young lady? Well, all you have to do is look at the list of this season's ACC scoring leaders. What you would find is that of the top 10, nine are Juniors and Seniors . . . household names like Carolyn Swords and Jasmine Thomas. But there's one lone freshman in the group. Yup, you guessed it. Maryland's own super frosh, Alyssa Thomas. And when it comes to rebounding, Alyssa is 11th in the Conference . . . the highest ranked freshman player in that category, too. Can there be any doubt as to who might win the ACC Rookie of the Year award when it's announced later this week in Greensboro? We think not.
What else is there to say, but Congratulations, Alyssa! As Terps fans, we know how truly lucky we are to have you on our team!
But there will be time to celebrate later; for now. . . on to Greensboro and the ACC Tourney!
Go Terps . . . Beat Tech!
