Maryland HC Brenda Frese sets program's all-time mark for hoops
Maryland’s women’s hoops program has a new all-time leader!
On Sunday, the Terrapins faced Nebraska on the road. Entering as the No. 9 team in the country, Maryland hit the ground running and dominated all the way. In the end, it was a 95-73 victory for the Terps.
The win pushed Maryland to 14-2 on the season and 10-1 in conference play, but the victory carried special significance with it. For head coach Brenda Frese, it was her 500th career win leading the Terps. That makes her the winningest coach in program history:
Congratulations to our leader on being the most successful coach in our history and winning in every sense of the word.

Frese originally took over the reins of the Maryland program in 2002 after short-term stints at Ball State and Minnesota. She led the Terrapins to the 2006 National Championship and is a three-time B1G Coach of the Year.
As things currently stand, Maryland is the leader in the B1G with Michigan second at 6-1 in conference play. All signs are pointing up for the Terrapins with a shot to play deep in the NCAA Tournament this season.
For now, congratulations are in order for Frese for an incredible accomplishment! Hopefully she is able to lead the Terps to a bright finish to the season.
