The Lady Terps are ACC champions. The Maryland women’s basketball team beat Miami today to lock up the regular season ACC title — the team’s first in 20 years — as well as the #1 seed in the ACC tournament, and probably the Big Dance as well.
You know the drill by now. Tolliver and Coleman led the way with an 11-6 and a 17-16, respectively. But some of the younger players were big in this one, too, as sophomore Marah Strickland (17 pts, 5 ast, 3 reb) and freshman force of nature Lynetta Kizer (10 pts, 10 reb) also made contributions.
The Terps will play the winner of N.C. State-Wake Forest in the second round of the conference tournament, which happens March 6-9 in Greensboro. UNC has won the tourney four straight times…knock em off the throne, ladies.
