Maryland To Honor Gary Williams Tonight Against Duke

The Maryland Terrapins will honor former head coach Gary Williams in a pregame court-naming ceremony prior to tonight’s game against the No. 6 ranked Duke Blue Devils, according to ESPN.

The Terps will honor Williams be renaming the Comcast Center court after the 22-year former Maryland head coach.  William’s replacement, Coach Mark Turgeon, expressed his respect for the legendary coach saying “We all know how Gary got up for the Duke game, so it’s an appropriate night for us to unveil his name on the floor.”

“We have to play for Coach [Gary] Williams,” guard Sean Mosley told reporters. “We don’t want to let him down on this big night.”

Williams coached Maryland from 1989-2011. In Williams’ 22 seasons, the Terps went 461-252 winning the NCAA title in 2002.  Williams retired after a 19-14 finish last season.

The pregame ceremony is scheduled to begin approximately 20 minutes before the 9 p.m. tip on ESPN.
