COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Each week during the 2017-18 season a Maryland student-athlete, who has shown excellence on and off the playing field, will be selected as the Solomon Eye Associates Terp of the Week. This week’s Solomon Eye Associates Terp of the Week is Kaila Charles of women's basketball.
Sophomore Kaila Charles led the 14th-ranked Maryland women's basketball team (7-2) to two more wins this week with 18.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game. She helped Maryland win its Big Ten/ACC Challenge match with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 3 steals at Virginia Wednesday. Her layup with 40 seconds to play put the Terrapins ahead and her free throw down the stretch sealed the win. At Akron Saturday, she scored 23 points with a career-high 14 rebounds for her fourth double-double this year. She hit 500 career points Saturday in her 44th career game. She has scored in double figures in all nine of the Terrapins' games this season.
