If the Maryland women’s basketball season ended today, head coach Brenda Frese’s squad would be 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament. The rankings released by the NCAA yesterday have Maryland as the No. 6 overall seed.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic canceled last year’s tournament, the Terps were a projected 1-seed.
After losing all five of their starters from last year’s squad, the Terps haven’t missed a beat as they currently are first in the nation in scoring and three-point field goal percentage.
With only two games left in the regular season and the Big Ten tournament right after, there is still a chance the team can become a 1-seed.
