Maryland women’s basketball forward Kaila Charles continues to rack up preseason honors, with high expectations going into her senior season.

On Wednesday, Charles was named one of 20 players to the watch list for Cheryl Miller Award, given to the nation’s best small forward. She was named the Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year earlier this week.

Charles was one of five finalists for the award in 2018-19 and looks to take it home this time around.

Last season, the small forward was named a All-Big Ten First Team selection after averaging 17 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, while also receiving All-American honors. Charles will be a key leader for the Terps this season, and the rest of country has certainly taken notice.
