Terps Move on to Regional Play


They’ve done it again! Last night the Maryland Terps dominated Utah, 71-56, in the second round of NCAA play at the Comcast Center.  Besides being a one-seed, having 10,000 screaming fans on your side can’t hurt. Oh, and not having lost a home game in 2 years ain’t bad either. 

Senior standouts Marissa Coleman (above far left) and Kristi Toliver said goodbye to their home court last night. Coleman had a double-double with 18 points, 18 rebounds and Toliver clocked in with 17 points. “Don’t forget my two rebounds,” she piped in in the post-game.


This isn’t the end of the road for the Terps, their senior stars or Maryland fans. The team will next continue their quest for a second NCAA championship in 4 years when they face Vanderbuilt in Raleigh, NC on Monday. Toliver and Coleman are expected to be prime prospects for the upcoming WNBA season as well.
