Harvard-Maryland: Why Kristi Sat

By Jessica Garrison - March 18, 2007

So the mystery of Toliver's first non-start was solved quite simply in the postgame press conference, where Brenda Frese explained that her sophomore point guard is "putting way too much pressure on herself". Calling Toliver a "tremendous team player", Frese admitted that forcing Toliver to watch the first few minutes of the game and allowing Wiley-Gatewood to run the team early would alleviate some of the pressure that Toliver has taken upon herself.

For her part, Toliver didn't seem in the least bit fazed by the decision. There wasn't a hint of bitterness in her voice when she explained that though sitting down early was "different", it was all for the good of the team.

"I'm still the same person, the same player I was before" she said. "I'm just coming in four minutes later."
