Maryland women’s basketball head coach Brenda Frese was named a Naismith Women’s Coach of the Year semifinalist by the Atlanta Tipoff Club Wednesday. She is one of 10 Division I head coaches to be included on the list.
Frese has led the Terps to 15 NCAA Tournaments, 12 conference titles, eight Sweet Sixteen appearances, six Elite Eight showings, three Final Fours and the 2006 NCAA Championship.
She is in her 19th year of coaching with a 505-130 (.795) record. Last month, she became the most-winning basketball coach in program history.
Despite losing five of their six top scorers from last year, the Terps have looked like a contender all season. They are 19-2 on the season, currently on an eight game win streak.
On Feb. 28, the Terps were ranked in the NCAA Reveal as the No. 6 overall team in the country and a No. 2 seed.
