In last year's NCAA Tournament run, the second-seeded Terps advanced all the way to the Elite Eight. They beat Navy and Louisville in College Park, then came back from an 18-point deficit to knock off defending national champion Texas A&M, 81-74, in the Sweet Sixteen.
The Terrapins have made eight NCAA Tournament appearances in head coach Brenda Frese's 10 postseasons. She's led Maryland to four Elite Eights, four Sweet Sixteens, a Final Four and the 2006 NCAA Championship. Her all-time record with Maryland in the Tournament is 19-7 (.731). The Terps are 8-2 in NCAA Tournament games in Comcast Center.
Now in her 11th season at Maryland, Frese was voted ACC Coach of the Year by her peers. Junior Alyssa Thomas was named ACC Player of the Year for the second straight year and is the first Terrapin to earn the honor twice.
