Maryland women’s basketball head coach Brenda Frese will officially be inducted into the Washington D.C. Metro Hall of Fame on Oct. 2, the program announced Wednesday evening.

The ceremony will take place at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. The ceremony will also welcome fellow basketball legends such as Bob Geoghan, Dan Harwood, EB Henderson, Sidney Lowe, Eddie Peterson, John Thompson Jr. and Dereck Whittenburg in the 2021 Hall of Fame class.

Frese will be in the Hall of Fame after helping the women’s basketball program earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament in 17 of her 19 seasons. In her coaching career at Maryland, Frese has advanced to three Final Fours, six Elite Eights and nine total Sweet 16 appearances. Her career is highlighted by helping the Terps capture the 2006 National Championship.

Frese had led Maryland to 14 conference titles, and her teams have won six of seven Big Ten championships since Maryland joined the conference back in 2014.

The Terps had another strong year during the 2020-21 season, in which Frese was named National Coach of the Year by ESPN, the Associated Press and The Athletic.

Maryland produced one of the best scoring offenses last season under Frese as the Terps finished with 26 wins in 29 total games overall.
