The University of Maryland women's basketball team has been a prominent program in the history of women's basketball. As a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Lady Terrapins have been regular season and tournament champions on numerous occasions. They were struggling with a losing record before Brenda Frese was named the team's head coach in 2002. Shay Doron is credited as being her first major recruit. Since then, they have regained their position as one of the top teams in the country. In 2006, with only four short years under Frese, the Lady Terps won their first NCAA Championship in their third trip to the Final Four - their first Final Four since 1989.

Head coach Brenda Frese announced during the pre-season that she was pregnant. Because of this, she was unable to coach from the sidelines for most of the regular season. Newcomer assistant coach Daron Park would take on the role of acting head coach. With the coaching changes, the experienced Lady Terrapins improved to a 30-3 record, and ranked 5 and 6 in the AP and Coaches polls respectively. Key returning players include Marissa Coleman, Laura Harper, Crystal Langhorne, and Kristi Toliver, all of whom were on the 2006 NCAA Championship team. With the loss of Shay Doron, whose #22 jersey was honored this season, Frese brought in 5 recruits. Two weeks after giving birth to twin boys, Frese returned to the sidelines during the ACC women's basketball tournament. Maryland eventually lost to Duke in the semifinals. Their next goal is to win the national title, entering the 2008 NCAA Tournament with a 1 seed. 2008 will mark their 17th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
