SIX is Special!!!

A HUGE congratulations to Alyssa Thomas, who today was named ACC Rookie of the Week . . . for the sixth time this season! With this week's well-deserved honor, super frosh Alyssa has now broken the Maryland school record for the most ever ACC Rookie of the Week honors.

To put this accomplishment in perspective: Crystal Langhorne and Marissa Coleman (two pretty darn good ballers in the BCs' opinion) shared the previous record . . . each was named ACC Rookie of the Week (just) five times. (Both went on to win the ACC's Rookie of the Year award, as did the Terps' current team leader, Lynetta Kizer.)

While Alyssa's latest Rookie of the Week accolade is hardly a surprise, it is still very special!

Congratulations, Alyssa!

NC State helped us out last night by beating UNC to give us a glimmer of hope for a top 4 seed. Let's go Terps, win out!!
Congrats Alyssa!

Right! If NC beats GT and then Duke beats NC and we win out, I think we move into the 4th slot, right because all 3 would be tied--and we beat both GT and UNC. ???

Yes -- the Terps have to win out, and UNC and GT must each lose (at least) one game. Since they play each other on Thursday, one of them will pick up a loss that night. If that team is GT, and Maryland wins out, Terps fans will be in the unusual position of hoping for a Duke win on Sunday.
