The Baltimore Sun

A school-record four Maryland women's basketball players were named to All-Atlantic Coast Conference teams announced yesterday, including Crystal Langhorne, who was named to an All-ACC squad for the fourth time, also a school record.

Langhorne, a senior All-America forward from Willingboro, N.J., was selected to the five-player first-team All-ACC unit along with point guard Kristi Toliver. Langhorne and Toliver, a junior from Harrisonburg, Va., each received 46 of 49 first-place votes cast by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association, the most of any players in the conference.

Their selection marked the first time since the 1988-89 season that two Maryland players were selected to the all-conference first team. Toliver led the ACC in assists at 7.6 per game and was fourth in scoring at 17.2. Langhorne, who was a second-team All-ACC selection as a freshman and a first-team choice the next three years, was sixth in scoring in the league at 16.5 and second in rebounding at 9.2.

Maryland junior forward Marissa Coleman was selected to the All-ACC second team for a third straight year, and senior center Laura Harper was a third-team all-conference choice.

Langhorne and Toliver were joined on the first team by North Carolina forwards Erlana Larkins and LaToya Pringle and North Carolina State forward Khadijah Whittington.

The Terps (29-2, 13-1 ACC), received the No.2 seed in this weekend's ACC tournament and will play the winner of Thursday's Boston College-Virginia Tech opening-round game Friday at 6 p.m.
