COLLEGE PARK -- A little more than two weeks after giving birth to twins, Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese returned to practice yesterday and declared herself back and ready to take over the team ... sort of. Frese, who delivered twin boys on Feb. 17, said she feels "about the best I've felt in seven months," and has an increased capacity to "breathe and move," which moved her to return to the fifth-ranked Terps in time for this weekend's Atlantic...

While her team prepared to meet Duke in an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown - which Maryland won, 76-69 - women's basketball coach Brenda Frese gave birth to twin boys yesterday morning at an undisclosed Washington-area hospital, the school announced. Frese, in her sixth year as Terrapins coach, delivered Markus William Thomas, who was born at 10:21 a.m., then gave birth to Tyler Joseph Thomas 30 minutes later. Markus weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces at birth and was 18.5 inches long, while Tyler weighed 5 pounds, 12 ounces and measured 19.25 inches.

According to the contract, Frese was to get “competition bonuses” for reaching the NCAA tournament's first round ($5,000), second round ($10,000), Sweet Sixteen ($15,000)

Boston -- The confetti was still fluttering to the arena floor when it became clear that the world of women's college basketball had just set foot into the future. We had a slight glimpse of it last season when unheralded Baylor injected some parity into the list of women's NCAA champions. But the Bears were one and done. The Maryland Terrapins, bolstered by a young lineup, a young coach and high schoolers lining up to play in College Park are poised for a reign that has no obvious end in sight.

For some in the Northeast, a trip to sunny Southern California is just what the doctor ordered at this time of year. However, the doctors for Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese didn't want her anywhere near either the West Coast or a plane that could have taken her there. That's why Frese, who is 25 weeks pregnant, remained at home while the No. 3 Terps played at UC-Santa Barbara and UCLA on Friday and Sunday, respectively, missing games for the first time in her six seasons as Maryland coach.

COLLEGE PARK - It's the good and the bad of it. The bigger women's college basketball gets, the more cutthroat the enterprise becomes, which is why it might be fair to ask how long first-year Maryland coach Brenda Frese will stick around. She is 32. She is an Iowa native (Cedar Rapids) with deep Midwest roots (assistant coach at Kent State and Iowa State and head coach at Ball State and Minnesota). Also worth mentioning, Frese, unlike her counterpart, Gary Williams, is not a Maryland alum.

College Park -- With the Maryland women's basketball team on the cusp of setting new standards this season, coach Brenda Frese is not taking a sit-back-and-see approach to the program's hopes of its first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament crown since 1989. "I always say that I don't want to sit and wait until next year because our chemistry is right this year," Frese said. "Everything is well in place this season and I think the sky's the limit for this team. We just need everyone being confident and believing in themselves and sticking together."

COLLEGE PARK - -Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese says an alarming number of women are transferring this year from Division I programs in the sport, leaving coaches and experts to figure out why. "It's amazing," Frese said as she examined the names of about 100 recent transfers on a list compiled by Dan Olson, owner of the Collegiate Girls Basketball Report, a subscription service. "I've never seen a list like that before," Frese said this week. "It's almost a new trend, and not a positive trend."

COLLEGE PARK -- There really was no good reason for Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese, one week after delivering twin boys, to be on the sideline at Comcast Center yesterday. For Frese, however, there were five special reasons to make a cameo appearance in the Maryland locker room and on the bench, namely to honor the five Terps playing in their final regular-season home game. And the Maryland players gave Frese something to remember, erasing an eight-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation to force overtime before beating Florida State, 92-84, in front of an announced 16,135, the largest crowd of the season and the fourth largest in Atlantic Coast Conference women's basketball history.

COLLEGE PARK — Brenda Frese will be the first to tell you she sometimes trampled through life, so intent on the goals ahead that she didn't necessarily worry about the bruised feelings left in her wake. If she wanted something, she took it, a brash style she used to transform the Maryland women's basketball program from losers to national champs in a mere four years. She was 35 then and couldn't have imagined she would need eight years to steer the Terps back to the Final Four.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - In 2005-06, when the Maryland women's basketball team won the national championship, coach Brenda Frese's top assistant was Jeff Walz, who proved an invaluable resource on the bench, in the locker room and on the recruiting trail. The two routinely discussed strategy, and in those sessions, Frese foresaw a bright future for her coaching disciple wherever his career led him. Two seasons after helping the Terps to their first and only NCAA title, Walz moved on to become head coach at Louisville and in that time has catapulted the Cardinals onto the national stage with two appearances in the championship game.

In its first road game since an 84-63 loss at No. 7 Duke a week ago, No. 8 Maryland dominated host Georgia Tech, 79-62, on Sunday, giving coach Brenda Frese her 300th win with the Terps . Alyssa Thomas, Brionna Jones (Aberdeen) and Katie Rutan each scored 15 points for Maryland (22-5, 10-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), with Thomas grabbing 10 rebounds for a doubledouble. Georgia Tech's Kaela Davis led all players with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but the Terps were more accurate overall, shooting 49.3 percent for the game while the Yellow Jackets (17-10, 7-7)

Feb. 17, 2008, is a day Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese will hold dear for the rest of her life, and it has virtually nothing to do with the Terps ' victory over Duke that afternoon. Sure, it was the last time Maryland won at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but that morning, Frese had given birth to twin sons Markus and Tyler Thomas. Frese's players learned the news hours before tip-off, and they parlayed their enthusiasm into a 76-69 triumph that added to the lore of the heated series dating from 1978.

COLLEGE PARK - At her most brilliant moments in a Maryland women's basketball uniform, Alyssa Thomas transforms into an overwhelming brute force. Offensive rebounds are vacuumed into her hands. She rips through contact the way high school football players do paper pep signs, and the ensuing putbacks seem to always drop down the net. Second-ranked Notre Dame encountered Thomas the way so many opponents have before, offering little resistance as the All-America forward ripped off 29 points and 12 rebounds and casually broke two more program records along the way. But the eighth-ranked Terps had dug themselves into so deep an early hole that not even a superhuman second half from Thomas could hoist them out. Despite erasing a 22-point deficit, their upset bid at Comcast Center fell short in an 87-83 loss.

COLLEGE PARK - In hindsight, it might have been a bit much to ask. To have the largest crowd in ACC women's basketball history, to be on ESPN2, to have the governor on hand, to have the No. 3-ranked team in the country in town, to have buzz surrounding the program that it hasn't had in years - and to win the game. Maryland might have been reaching beyond its grasp yesterday. Could be. Just don't tell that to Brenda Frese or Debbie Yow. Maryland didn't win the game, and thus couldn't complete the weekend sweep of Duke at Comcast Center.

At Maryland, Frese is making all the right moves Brenda Frese was dying to scream, stomp or pound her fist on the floor. Anything to fire up her basketball team as third-ranked Maryland muddled through its second-round game against St. John's in the NCAA women's tournament Tuesday night. There were the Terps, forcing silly turnovers and allowing easy layups - in short, playing like their male counterparts this season. But Frese, the Maryland coach, didn't lose her cool. There were no tirades, no getting in the players' faces, no outward expressions of frustration.

COLLEGE PARK  - A year ago, coaches representing the University of Maryland's 19 athletic teams lined up across the back wall of a meeting room in the student union, all dressed in red. The plan, according to an internal email, was to present a "visual display of unity" behind university President Wallace Loh as he publicly announced the school's move to the Big Ten Conference after 60 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference. But the reality is that two of the school's most prominent coaches had reacted strongly against the decision in private, while others were stunned, according to interviews and emails obtained by The Baltimore Sun under a Public Information Act request.
