MM 11.22: Maryland women’s basketball’s Diamond Miller named Big Ten Player of the Week

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Womens Basketball: Maryland at Baylor Chris Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Diamond Miller showed out for Maryland women’s basketball, notching a career-high 32 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in Maryland’s win over No. 21 Baylor. Miller’s stellar performance, which marked her fifth career double-double, led to the first-ever Big Ten Player of the Week honor of her career.

Miller is a very high WNBA prospect for this year’s draft and showed why against Baylor. On top of her 32 points — 24 of which came in the second and third quarters — she drained two 3-pointers and shot 50% from the field, leading the Terps in scoring in Maryland’s first win over a ranked opponent this season.

Miller also scored 19 points against Davidson in the Terps’ win over the Wildcats, shooting over 50% in that game as well. In this two-game stretch, she has averaged 25.5 points, seven rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. Miller has also scored double-digit points in every game she has played in this season.

Miller and the Terps head to Florida this weekend to compete in the three-day Fort Meyers Tip-Off tournament against DePaul, Towson and Pitt.
