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!

Good god - she is a marvel! Take that, McDonald's All-Americans - we have (IMO) the best freshm(e)n in the country and a super frosh to boot. Congrats AT!

Alyssa and Lynette both got picked for the 2nd team All -Conference. First time a freshman has been picked for 1st or 2nd team all-conf since our very own Marissa Coleman. Way to go Terps.

2nd team? I am sorry, I think she should have been 1st team, really.

I agree .. 1st team seems entirely appropriate. In any case, I'm guessing this is her ONLY year NOT being on 1st team. Future looks very bright.

Yeah, she probably got penalized for being a freshman...
