Maryland's New Backcourt

By Jeff Lippman - August 31, 2007

It is entirely conceivable that 18 years from this March, Maryland, led by their two freshman sensations the Frese sisters, and coached by their mom Brenda, will play for a national championship.

That is because Maryland's Brenda Frese is pregnant. The Washington Post's Kathy Orton is reporting Frese is due to give birth to fraternal twins on March 11, which would be less than two weeks before the NCAA Tournament.

It has not yet been reported as to whether Frese will coach the team up to her due date, but this creates a small problem for the Terps, who will certainly be without Frese for at least a few games at the end of the season.

As for who will take over the Terps in Frese's absence, Maryland has almost an entirely new coaching staff because of the departures of Jeff Walz, Joanna Bernabei and Mark Pearson.

Maryland will have to choose between Erica Floyd, who has 13 years of assistant coaching experience and has been a member of the Maryland staff since 2002-03, Daron Park and Diane Richardson, who are both new to the staff.

If I had to guess, I would say look for Floyd, a former Ohio State standout, to get the task.

This guarantees that at least one team will experience March Madness regardless if they make it into the tournament or not.
