COLLEGE PARK, Md.--Maryland women's basketball head coach Brenda Frese and players spoke to the media after the Terps win over Catholic, 110-34.
One season removed from losing three players-Lauren Mincy, Essence Townsend, and Brene Moseley-with torn ACLs, and another, Tierney Pfierman, with a dislocated knee cap, Brenda Frese's eye lit up as she looked at the depth on her bench. Mincy, Moseley, Townsend, and Pfierman were all back on the court Tuesday night as the Terps hosted Catholic University in an exhibition game at the Comcast Center.
Last season, a season-ending injury to point guard Brene Moseley, thrust then freshman point guard Chloe Pavlech into a starting role. Even with Moseley healthy again, it was Pavlech who got the start at the point.
Just because Pavlech got the start doesn't mean the job is hers to keep. She finished with five points, six assists and a steal, but Moseley, who started the second half, finished with seven points, , three rebounds, six assists, two steals, a block and a turnover.
The third floor general in the race for the starting job, Lexie Brown, proved she can handle the college game as well. On her first play on the court, Brown picked off a pass and drove the length of the court for the hoop and the harm. The freshman point guard finished with eight points, two rebounds, four assists, and a steal but she also had six turnovers. Still Brown was impressive in her first collegiate action.
After the game, Coach Frese said she was more concerned with finding the best rotation and right combination of players out on the court, rather than having a set starter at the point.
Coach Frese spoke about the point guard situation, the health of her team, freshman, and more, after the game in the video below.
