Breaking down the Terps
Take a deeper look into Maryland's prolonged success
The Terps have captured five consecutive ACC championships. The last time they were not crowned in their conference was the same year of the release of the award-winning animated film WALL-E (2008).
Beginning in 1986, Maryland has won 10 NCAA championships. Its total is three more than any other program in Division I women's lacrosse (Northwestern, 7).
Maryland has netted 15.47 goals per game this season. The Terps sit at No. 4 in the nation behind only Jacksonville (16.17), Stony Brook (15.94) and Florida (15.59).
Since its first title game appearance in 1984, Maryland has advanced to 16 NCAA championship games. Its total is seven more than any other DI women's lacrosse program (Virginia, 9).
The Terps have been dominant in ACC tournament games with a 19-2 mark since the 2007-08 season.
Maryland currently rides a 25-game win streak in regular-season and ACC tournament games. To put that in perspective, the Phoenix Suns won a total of 25 games in the NBA this season. Three other teams won 24 or fewer.
As coined in the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz, the Terps have proved in recent years that, "There's no place like home." Maryland's squads are a combined 100-8 in games played in College Park, Md., since the 2002-03 season.
Paced by senior Alex Aust's team-leading 60 goals and 48 assists, the Terps have outscored their opponents by a 136-goal margin this season (294-158).
