Exhibition loss offers UM women lots to like

Terps hold their own against U.S. national team

U.S. national team 90 Maryland 73

COLLEGE PARK -- For the optimistic types, two good things emerged from Maryland's 90-73 loss to the United States national women's basketball team last night at Comcast Center. The first is that the score, the statistics and the loss itself don't count, as the game was an exhibition, the basketball equivalent of a soccer friendly.

The second positive is the Terps, nearly three weeks into practice and a week and a half away from their season opener, should have gained valuable early season experience against a team with 13 WNBA players that is demonstrably better than any they'll face during the coming college season.
