Maryland women’s basketball senior guard Diamond Miller was named to the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Watch List for the second consecutive season, it was announced Tuesday. The award honors the best shooting guard in NCAA Division I women’s basketball.

Miller, who was also named to the All-Big Ten preseason team earlier this month, is the Terps’ top returning scorer, averaging 13.1 points and 4.0 rebounds a season ago. She has twice earned All-Big Ten honors and was named 2021 Big Ten Tournament Co-MVP.

With a retooled roster, Maryland once again enters the 2022 season with high expectations. The Terps were ranked No. 17 in the AP preseason poll and face a challenging schedule that features three nonconference games against top-10 opponents and a Big Ten slate including some of the nation’s top programs.

The Terps were picked to finish fourth in the conference by the Big Ten’s coaches and media.
