Maryland women’s basketball opens its season against UMass Lowell on Nov. 13. Until then, we’re profiling everyone on the Terps’ roster.
Sarah Myers, freshman, guard, 6’0, No. 21
Hometown: Cumming, GA
High School: South Forsyth
Recruiting Ratings: Three stars, No. 58 guard in the country
Collegiate Stats: N/A
How did she get to College Park?
Myers committed to Maryland in the summer of 2013, before her sophomore season in high school. She put together a stellar career at South Forsyth, scoring over 2,300 points in her career and averaging a 23-6-5 as a senior. Now she joins fellow Forsyth County native Jenna Staiti on the Terps.
The Terps have only one natural point guard on the roster, and that’s freshman Destiny Slocum. Coach Brenda Frese has Myers and redshirt junior Iesha Small serving as the backups at that position. Myers probably isn’t looking at any high-leverage playing time this year, but she could surprise some people.
What a dream season might look like
Myers gives Maryland productive minutes in Slocum’s absence and becomes a legitimate threat from long range.
This player didn’t see the floor on the Terps’ trip to Italy, but made a statement in her first game action on Wednesday.
ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe, Turtle Shell and NeonParkTerp are our winners so far.
