Having led her team to a No. 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament, Maryland women’s basketball senior guard Diamond Miller was named to both the AP All-American second team and the USBWA All-American second team on Wednesday.
It’s the first time in her career that she has received a spot on an All-American team.
This season, Miller was an absolute force for head coach Brenda Frese and put up monster numbers in likely her final year of collegiate basketball. She led the team in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 19.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-3 guard also led the way on the other side of the court with a team-high 63 steals and 40 blocks.
She had three 30-point games and nine 20-point games in her best season in College Park. Miller stepped up and became the number one option for Maryland this season.
Miller will look to lead the Terps to a deep NCAA Tournament run. They will start their tournament against No. 15-seed Holy Cross on Friday at 2:30 p.m.
