RALEIGH, N.C. — Lynetta Kizer and her Maryland seniors have followed this path before. They hope it ends in a different place.
For the second time in four years, the Terrapins won an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship, claimed a high seed in the NCAA tournament and rolled to the Raleigh Regional finals.
No. 2 seed Maryland (31-4) meets top-seeded Notre Dame (33-3) on Tuesday night.
It's a familiar scenario for a Terrapins team that won its last ACC tournament in 2009, when Kizer was a freshman. They advanced to the regional final but were knocked off by Louisville in the last time Raleigh hosted a regional.
Kiser said Monday that she didn't fully understand what was at stake then — but she's making sure her young teammates do now.
