Maryland Women Getting Ready For World University Games


By Steve Jones, PressBox

From October through March, the sound of basketballs bouncing on the Xfinity Center court is a commonplace occurrence. But the summer months are usually quiet, save for the youth camps that occupy the University of Maryland's arena.

But the summer of 2017 is different. The Maryland women's basketball team has taken over the arena, in advance of a long road trip. The Terps are sharpening their skills for the World University Games, which are scheduled for August 19-30 in Taipei, Taiwan. Head coach Brenda Frese's squad was chosen by the United States International University Sports Federation (US-IUSF) to represent America in the Games, which feature teams from 16 countries.

"It's only the second time a women's [college] team has been invited to go over, so we're extremely honored," Frese said. "We're not only representing Maryland, we're representing the United States."
