Two guys on the roster are keeping a close eye on the bracket for the NCAA Women's Tournament, former University of Maryland Terrapins Danny Califf and Maurice Edu. The Lady Terps, one of four No. 1 seeds, are seeking their second NCAA title in four years after winning the 2006 trophy under head coach Brenda Frese, and have reached the Round of 16 after comprehensive victories against Dartmouth and Utah.
"They have a great leader in Kristi Toliver, and they have been very convincing in their wins," said Edu. "I think they have the tools to be national champions."
Fans of ussoccer.com's All_Access Video will recall that the MNT's original videographer Mark Thomas is the husband of the Maryland coach. Fear the turtle!
