They're Watching!

According to recent press reports (see here and here), Maryland has four players (Crystal, Laura, Marissa and Kristi, 1-2-3-4!) on the pre-season watch list released late last week for the prestigious (but kinda ugly) Naismith Trophy. That's the most of any school in the country! The Naismith is awarded at season's end to the individual considered to be the national player of the year. Having four players in contention for this honor just shows how deep and balanced this Terps team really is.

Congratulations to Lang, Harp, Marissa and Kristi! We'll be watching!

ACC Player of the Week. It's hard to believe she's never won it before, but for the first time in her career, Laura Harper was named this week's ACC Player of the Week. It seems like a long time ago, but her HUGE game at JMU last week (which helped the Terps end the Dukes' longest home win streak in the nation) clearly caught the attention of the voters. Congratulations Harp!

By the way, with Laura's selection, four Terps (yes, the same four named to the Naismith watch list) have now won the ACC Player of the Week award this season. And also (by the way) in last week's JMU game, Lang pulled down her 1,000th career rebound (and added a few more for good measure), making her the first female Terp (and only the second Maryland player ever) to hit that remarkable milestone. Lang is closing in on Terp Len Elmore's record 1,053.
