WHAT'S NEXT: Maryland advances to face the winner of the afternoon's second game at the KFC Yum! Center between No. 2 seed Louisville and No. 7 seed LSU. Maryland last reached the Final Four in 2006, when it won its only national championship. Should Louisville advance, Maryland will be among a group of the teams trying to win a regional final on an opponent's home court for the first time since 1996.
Maryland has not played Louisville, or former Terrapins assistant coach Jeff Walz, since the second round of the 2012 NCAA tournament. Maryland's Mincy led all scorers with 24 points in a win that day, while Alyssa Thomas struggled with foul trouble. The teams also met in a regional final in 2009, when Louisville's 77-60 win sent it to its first Final Four and ended the careers of the senior class that led the Terrapins to the national title as freshmen in 2006.
