GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Maryland women's coach Brenda Frese acknowledged that pacing up and down the sideline for the first time since Halloween left her a little winded.

But watching the fifth-ranked Terps try to hand back a 20-point lead in the second half to Boston College wasn't a day at the beach, either.

The traffic jam and the ticket scalpers outside Cole Field House in College Park last Tuesday night were only to be expected when a game features the country's No. 1 and No. 2 teams -- except for one thing: These were the top women's teams.No. 1 Maryland lost to second-ranked Virginia as a last-second shot missed the basket. But the Terps' slim defeat took back seat to the fact that a standing-room-only crowd of 14,500 jammed into Cole to see women playing good, exciting basketball. The evening was a tribute to Chris Weller, who in her 17 years as coach has built a strong women's program despite the years when a big crowd might mean a couple of hundred spectators.

Taylor Cummings fought off monster butterflies in her stomach last year as a freshman starter for the Maryland women's lacrosse team. Even though the McDonogh graduate ranked No. 1 in her recruiting class and played for the No. 1 high school team in the country, she could not shake the nerves before every Terps game. She always felt there was so much more to learn playing on a Maryland team ranked No. 1 until it fell in the NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina.
