It's been about a week or so since the Maryland vs Duke women's game in the Comcast Center. The DC Sports Box was fortunate enough to receive credentials to this event and it was a lot of fun to attend. Tonight the Terps were back in action playing the Miami Hurricanes.

In the media room prior to the game several reporters were conversing over pasta about how nice the women's game are to work in comparison to the men's games. I've felt the same thing this season. The women's games are much more low key, they're faster, and theres a lot more room down on the floor to work.

Tonight was a good game for the Terps. Crystal Langhorne scored her 2,000th point just 24 seconds into the first half. The 2,000 point plateau is pretty significant. Only 15 other players in the ACC have crossed that threshold, and none of them from the University of Maryland. Toliver also picked up her 500th assist this evening. Ashleigh Newman got a ball for something like 139 consecutive starts as a Terrapin. The team is really racking up the records!

Langhorne's 2,000 points is really remarkable. In comparison, James Gist just passed 1,000 points on the men's team. With 2,000 points she had to score something like 20+ points per game since joining the team. It's pretty amazing.

Anthony was there working on an article. That takes a big load of my shoulders. I'm able to simply photograph and post. His article (along with my photos) of Maryland's 90-50 win over the Miami Hurricanes is over on the DC Sports Box. Please go take a look!
