The University of Maryland women’s basketball team makes its first appearance on Friday, Oct. 12, during College Park’s annual Maryland Madness. Inside the Comcast Center, Terp fans cheer as the players perform a choreographed dance while wearing matching cargo shorts.
Six-foot-seven center, junior Essence Townsend, strikes a pose as her name is being announced over the loudspeaker. Each player is introduced individually.
The team splits off into two to compete in an intrasquad scrimmage, giving every player a chance show off her unique set of skills.
