If you were at the Terps’ open practice yesterday (Sunday) for the Rebounders, you no doubt saw sophomore PG Brene Moseley get knocked to the floor during the scrimmage with the Scout team. Afterwards, Brene needed help from her teammates getting off the court.

When Brene hit the deck, it was clear that she was in extreme pain.  But we were afraid it was only partially the pain of a serious injury; we were very afraid it was (even more) the pain of recognition that she found so frightening.  We hoped that we were very, very wrong.

Unfortunately, after an MRI today, those fears were confirmed.  Brene, who tore one ACL in high school, tore the ACL in her other knee yesterday.  We suspect she recognized the injury immediately, and the MRI only confirmed her worst fears. 

Everybody knows an ACL tear requires substantial recovery time.  So what is there to say? Obviously and most important, that we feel so very bad for Brene.  And we also feel really bad for her teammates and coaches (not to mention Maryland fans), because, after the remarkable freshman season that Brene had, this is a very big loss for this year’s team.

Good luck, Brene.  Here’s hoping for your full and speedy recovery.

so sorry to hear about Brene...i feared the worse at the scrimmage yesterday--sending well wishes and healing energy to her. And for the team--look to Indiana Fever's example--they just won the WNBA championship last night with players down--as the amazing Tamika Catchings said, on a team, when one person goes down, another one steps up. We are behind you all the way....

Starting a freshman PG with no backup. This is very bad news for the Terps, very bad indeed. Feel very bad for Brene--she really has potential to be something very special--WNBA material. Sure could use Dara Taylor about now.

We love you, Brene. I know this team, fans included, will rally around you on and off the court.
