The University of Maryland Terrapins basketball team is one of the most accomplished programs in the Northeast. The Terrapins first started playing basketball in the early 1900s and has been winning ever since. Maryland has won over 1400 games in their history, placing them among the winningest programs on the East coast. In 1958, the Terrapins made their first trip to the NCAA Tournament, and have been back to the Big Dance over 23 times since then. The program has appeared in over a dozen Sweet Sixteen’s, and has advanced to the Elite Eight on 5 occasions. The Terrapins made back-to-back trips to the Final Four in 2001 and 2002, and won the 2002 National Championship. Leading Maryland to all of this success has been names like Lonny Baxter, Steve Francis, Juan Dixon, Steve Blake, D.J. Strawberry, Jordan Williams, Olexy Len, Joe Smith, and Greivis Vasquez. Maryland also has a history of great coaches with legendary leaders Gary Williams, Lefty Driesell, and Bud Milikan all leading the Terrapins to major success. UM has been one of the most consistent programs since 1990 and seems to make the NCAA Tournament almost every season. This success has ignited an already die-hard fan base. The Terrapins have one of the biggest home court advantages in the country as their fans are always loud and coming up with unique ways to distract and deafen visiting players. The success and swagger of Maryland players and fans has led to the slogan “Fear the Turtle,” a notion that must go through the mind of anyone lining up to play against the Terrapins.

Maryland Terrapins Basketball at Comcast Center Address: 2001 Paint Branch Dr. College Park, Maryland 20740
The University of Maryland Terrapins basketball team plays their home games at the Comcast Center in College Park, Maryland. The Comcast Center has been home to Terrapins basketball since 2002, and can seat over 17,900 fans. The arena replaced the historic Cole Field House, which had been the home of Maryland basketball since the 1950s. The Comcast Center is the largest basketball venue in the State of Maryland and is one of the largest in the Big 10. The court was renamed in honor of legendary Maryland Coach Gary Williams in 2012, and the arena is often referred to as the “House that Gary Built.” Unlike many college basketball arenas, the student section at the Comcast Center is spread all around the court, with students sitting in the first ten rows on all sides of the court. On the west end of the arena is what is known as “the Wall,” which is a steeply pitched seating area that is designated for students and is right behind the visiting team’s second half basket. The Wall is one of the most intimidating backdrops in any college basketball arena, and the Comcast Center as a whole is consistently rated among the most difficult places for opposing teams to play.
