Traditionally, the women's basketball team at the University of Maryland plays its best in the final month of the season. It's what coaches strive for but often don't get.In past years, with the exception of the only losing season under 16th-year coach Chris Weller (9-18 in 1984-85), Maryland has charged down the stretch. Counting the last dozen games for each of the previous 14 seasons, the team has won 70.2 percent (118-50) and earned a record eight Atlantic Coast Conference tournament titles.
