Maryland women’s basketball guard Ashley Owusu was named to the Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy Midseason Team Tuesday.

Owusu, a sophomore, joins 29 other Division I standouts on the midseason watchlist, which will shrink to 10 nominees and four finalists next month before a winner is announced on April 3.

The Woodbridge, Va. native has been nothing short of integral to the Terps’ success this season. Owusu is averaging 18.9 points and 5.4 assists per game, good for third and sixth-best in the Big Ten, respectively. Her ability to facilitate and score has helped the nation’s best offense (scoring 91.5 points per game) to a 13-2 overall record, and a 9-1 record in conference play.

The No. 9 Terps will travel to Nebraska for an away fixture this Sunday, February 14 at 5 p.m., then host Illinois and Minnesota next week in College Park. With the regular season nearing its close, the Terps will look to finish strong and secure a solid seed in the NCAA Tournament.
