Maryland women’s basketball continued to rack up offseason honors as freshman guard Ashley Owusu was named to the Fab 15 Freshman list Thursday.

The list is released by Her Hoop Stats along with United States Basketball Writers Association representative Mel Greenberg.

Owusu was one of five Power Five conference players to land on the list, and she was the only player from the Big Ten to earn the honor.

In her first season in College Park, Owusu was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year and landed on the All-Big Ten Second Team after averaging 12.0 points and 5.4 assists per game.

Owusu was also named the 2020 Big Ten Tournament MVP after she averaged 15.3 points, 8.0 assists and 5.7 rebounds across the Terps’ three games in Indianapolis en route to a fourth Big Ten title.
