Years from now, Alyssa Thomas will look back with pride at all she accomplished on a personal level at Maryland.
Ever since she arrived at Maryland as a shy freshman, Alyssa Thomas has been all about winning
Alyssa Thomas kept passing the ball to Katie Rutan, who repeatedly knocked down shots from beyond the arc.
Florida State coach Sue Semrau figured the best way to beat No. 8 Maryland was to smother the Terrapins' inside game and force them to fire away from the outside.
Alyssa Thomas had 26 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks and No. 10 Maryland took charge from the opening tip and beat Virginia Tech 74-45 on Sunday.
"She's never even talked about setting records since I've known her," Terps senior guard Katie Rutan said. "She doesn't know about records until she's told. She's not chasing those. She's chasing victories. While those are great things that come along with it, that's not something Alyssa has ever chased. This moment — going to the Final Four — is what she's been chasing. I'm so happy she's finally getting to live it."
Rutan, who waited just as long as Thomas for this moment, said, "She's put her heart and soul into this team for four years. She's been the leader on and off the court. For her to be able to get this chance and finally play in the Final Four and not just attend it, it's just great."
