Maryland's Comcast Center to be named for Gary Williams
The University of Maryland has announced that it will dedicate its basketball court at the Comcast Center to longtime coach Gary Williams, who retired in May. The dedication will take place on Dec. 9. There's no game scheduled for that day, but surely the students will find this special event reason enough to get hammered.
In 22 years at the helm, Williams compiled a 461-252 record, making him the winningest coach in Maryland history. His Terps have reached the NCAA tournament 14 times in the past 18 years, went to the Sweet 16 seven times, made the Final Four twice, and won it all in 2002. Incoming coach Mark Turgeon has a lot to live up to — and he'll see its name on the court every day.
