The Maryland women's basketball team may not have successfully defended their 2006 national championship, but they've had a pretty good summer.

Three players, rising junior Marissa Coleman and rising seniors Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper, have captured gold medals as members of championship teams involved in international competitions on behalf of USA Basketball. Coleman played a key role on the United States' Pan American Games team, while Harper and Langhorne were members of the under-21 year old squad. And Maryland announced that the 9,533 fans it drew per game last season was sixth in the NCAA in average attendance, while the 241,280 total attendance was fourth best in the NCAA.
