Morgantown East

Congratulations University of Maryland students! Your women’s basketball team won the national championship and you managed to celebrate with only minor fires and no arrests (The Post)! This is a vast improvement over previous big games when multiple arrests and thousands of dollars in property damage followed — pat yourselves on the back. At this rate you may someday rival George Mason University in post-game celebrations instead of WVU.

Lady Terps Dominate Big Dance

For a team that was ranked 14th this season, the Lady Terps looked awful good against Duke tonight. Forcing Overtime in the closing seconds of regulation, the Lady Terps took momentum into the extra time and came home with the national championship over the Blue Devils of Duke. With all the hubbub about George Mason in the mens’ tourney, no one was paying attention to the womens’ tourney and that’s a crying shame as Kristi Toliver showed everyone with her three-pointer to end regulation.

The Lady Terps came back from 13 points down in the second half and forced overtime with just 35 seconds remaining, then steamrolled over Duke in OT. Much credit is to be given to Brenda Frese, the Terps’ coach, for her excellent clock management and incredible work with the Lady Terps this year. Truly, we have champions in DC to be proud of!
