Under head coach Brenda Frese, No. 8 Maryland women’s basketball is in the midst of another successful season. It is anchored by the strong duo of Diamond Miller and Shyanne Sellers. Both players were recently named to watch lists for the best player at their position in the country.

Senior Diamond Miller was put on the watch list for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award for the nation’s best shooting guard. Miller ranks third in the Big Ten in scoring, averaging 18.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Her signature moment of the season was a clutch buzzer-beater on the road to defeat Notre Dame.

Sellers, a sophomore, earned a place on the Cheryl Miller Award watch list, given to the nation’s best small forward. Sellers has been a consistent all-around contributor for the Terps this year, putting up 14.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game on the season.
