Maryland women’s basketball looks to be set for another strong campaign, as the Terps recently checked in at No. 17 on the preseason AP poll. Now, multiple players have earned preseason honors.

Sophomore wing Shyanne Sellers was named to the 20-woman watch list for the Cheryl Miller Award. The award honors the best small forward in the nation every year.

As a freshman, Sellers was named Big Ten Sixth Woman of the Year, putting up 7.7 points per game off the bench. Tuesday, senior guard Diamond Miller was named to the watch list for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, the award for the nation’s best shooting guard. Expectations will be high in the XFINITY Center for the Terps home opener against reigning champion and preseason No. 1 South Carolina.
