Our Profiles in Terpage series continues with another Georgia freshman.

Scenes from 2016 Maryland Madness

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

Twitter: @thatballergirl

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.

2016-17 prospectus

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.
