The 1987 Terrapins started the season with a 4-3-1 record in its first eight games, with three of those games against NCAA-bound teams. Behind All-Americans Kim Turner and Jessica Wilk, the Terps righted the ship and won the next 10 games, including three wins over teams that would compete in NCAAs, including top-seeded UNC. After a 5-0 loss to the Heels in the ACC tournament final, Maryland won three consecutive 2-1 games that concluded with a 2-1 overtime victory over UNC in Chapel Hill that gave Maryland their first NCAA title in school history.
