Maryland women’s basketball senior guard Diamond Miller was named to the Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 Watch List, it was announced Monday.

Miller was previously named to both the preseason and midseason top 50 watch lists for the same award, which is annually given to the nation’s most outstanding player.

Projected to be a top-three pick in the 2023 WNBA Draft, Miller leads the No. 8 Terps in almost every statistical category. She is well on her way to the third All-Big Ten honor of her career, as her 18.6 points per game ranks third in the Big Ten and 28th nationally.

Her two-way play has highlighted her stellar campaign, ranking fourth in the conference in both steals and blocks.

She has helped guide the Terps to four victories against ranked opponents, averaging 24.4 points and 7.2 rebounds in those top-25 matchups.

Miller and the Terps are back on the road this Thursday for a massive game against No. 6 Iowa. The winner of the contest will take possession of second place in the Big Ten.
