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.
“You saw a team that you know I thought punched first and never looked back,” Frese said.
The win is the 12th straight victory for the Terps. They will play No. 6 seed Iowa on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Big Ten title game.
