On Bogunovic
An honorable mention All-ACC pick last season, Bogunovic, at 6-8, is the tallest woman to ever play basketball at Maryland ... she enters her senior campaign with expectations of becoming a dominant force in the ACC ... has improved dramatically since her arrival at Maryland … difficult to defend when she receives the ball near the bucket … steadily improved her level of play and challenged Maryland's record for field goal percentage during her junior campaign ... one of four returning starters and four seniors ... has adapted well to American style of play since playing just eight games as a freshman ... runs the court well for her size and has worked hard the past two summers to develop strong post moves ... plays with a contagious smile and has become a fan favorite in Cole Field House.
