David Saur, a Sykesville native, is Chatham University's women's basketball coach. In his first season as coach, the Cougars are 10-11 and in the middle of the Presidents' Athletic Conference standings.
At 17-1, the Terps clearly emerged ahead of second seed North Carolina (15-3), third seed Duke (14-4) and fourth seed Syracuse (14-7) after the Tar Heels lost to Syracuse in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, the Blue Devils lost to Johns Hopkins Sunday and Syracuse lost to Loyola Maryland Saturday.
The Atlantic Coast Conference, led by overall No. 1 seed Maryland, dominated the top spots in the NCAA Division I women's championship bracket announced Sunday night, with six teams among the eight seeded spots in the 26-team field.
Navy earned its first seeded spot in the NCAA women's Division I lacrosse tournament and Loyola's late surge was enough for an at-large bid when the selections to the newly-expanded 26-team bracket were announced Sunday night.
