Maryland vs Elon at Comcast Center

I graduated from Elon College (now University) in 1985. So when the Maryland first played Elon in basketball at the Comcast Center in December 2008, I went. Elon was never in that game then and they lost 76-50. Later that season, the Phoenix (They were the Fightin' Christians when I attended Elon) played in their conference championship game, losing to a Davidson squad led by future NBA player Stephen Curry by 15 points.

This year the Phoenix came to College Park with a 2-2 record and they hung in there with the Terps for a half before losing 76-57. Here is my photo essay from the game. Yes, I was rooting for my beloved Terps, who I've rooted for since I was a kid.

Jordan Williams led the Terps (5-2) with 24 points and 13 rebounds
