Still Setting Records. Although the regular season is now history (29-2 . . . wow), the Terps are still setting records -- individually and as a group.
Yesterday, Crystal Langhorne was named to the All-ACC first team, making her the only woman in Maryland history to be named to the All-ACC team four times . . . and to the first team three times! Congratulations, Crystal!
But Lang wasn't the only Maryland player to earn All-ACC first team honors. Uhh-uhh. Kristi Toliver, who's having an amazing season, was also named to the All-ACC first team. In fact, she and Lang tied for the most points and most first team votes received by anyone in the ACC!! Congratulations, Kristi!
Continuing with the individual accolades, Marissa Coleman was named to the All-ACC second team (for the third year in a row!), and Laura Harper earned All-ACC third team honors (too low in our opinion, but a great honor nevertheless). Congratulations, Marissa and Laura!
And if you total it up (wait a minute while we find a calculator) . . . that makes four Terps on the All-ACC team -- a school record! Congratulations, one and all!

Voted for Crystal? Have you? Today? You do know that she's in the running for the Lowe's Senior Class Award, which honors a senior student-athlete for her chararcter and her contributions both on and off the court? Right? We hate to tell you, but at the moment she is waaayy behind!
Who's in the lead, you wonder? Candice Wiggins? No. Sylvia Fowles? Wrong again! Actually, 48% of the voters have cast their ballots for either Rebekah Parker (University of Evansville . . . you didn't vote for her, did you Rhet?) or Sarah Elliott (University of Kentucky) . . . 24% each. Crystal's percentage is only 5%!
So vote -- early and often!!! Well, you can only vote once a day . . . so vote early today, and early tomorrow and early the day after that, etc, etc. Come on, Terps fans . . . for a change, Crystal needs our help for a come-from-behind victory. Vote for Crystal!
