No Surprise either that four Terps (all the usual suspects . . . Harp, Lang, Marissa and Kristi) ended the game in double figures. And to no one's surprise, Harp (21 pts, 11 rbs), Lang (20 pts, 11 rbs) and Marissa (11 pts, 10 rbs) each notched double-doubles.
The only Surprise of the day was the unscheduled appearance on the bench of 2-week Mom-of-Twins, Coach Brenda Frese! The "official" word (reported by the media and repeated by the BasketCases) was that Coach B would be watching the game at home. But Surprise! . . . Coach B showed up at Reynolds Coliseum today to support her young ladies. According to the game's announcers, the Terps were not expecting her to be there and thought they were listening to an audio clip when they heard her voice this morning after shootaround. But to their (and our) pleasant Surprise, it was Coach B in the flesh. It's really good to know she's baaack! And if anyone had any doubt whether we'll be seeing Coach B in Greensboro on Friday, well, it would seem her appearance this afternoon would put that doubt to rest.
