Coach: Brenda Frese (107-71 overall, 50-41 at Maryland).

Last season: 22-10, 7-7 ACC.

Data: After reaching the second round of the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive year, the Terrapins added two McDonald's all-American guards: Marissa Coleman (St. John's) and Kristi Toliver. Maryland welcomes back sophomore forward-center Laura Harper, who played in nine games before rupturing her Achilles' tendon. Harper joins sophomore center-forward Crystal Langhorne to form a formidable front court. Junior guard Shay Doron, a first-team all-ACC pick, is the top returning scorer at 17.6 points per game.
