National head coach of the year Brenda Frese and her squad roll Northwestern in Big Ten semifinals


INDIANAPOLIS (WDVM) – On Friday, Maryland women’s basketball head coach Brenda Frese was named National Head Coach of the Year by ESPN. On Friday afternoon, Frese and her squad demolished Northwestern 85-52 to advance to their seventh consecutive Big Ten title game.

With her parents in attendance, Frese coached as her team dominated the Wildcats. Senior forward Alaysia Styles scored a game-high 15 points and made all seven of her field goal attempts.
