October 16, 2013

Only 244 folks follow the University of Maryland Athletics Facilities, Operations and Events Twitter account, which means only 244 folks are receiving the regular picture updates as Cole Field House converts back into a basketball venue for Friday’s Maryland Madness.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the program, beginning with an alumni game, is scheduled to begin at 6:30. Alumni will be made available to reporters, and current players on both the men’s and women’s basketball teams will participate in public autograph sessions from 5:30-6:15 p.m. will stream the event live online.

For now, enjoy the tweet-by-tweet transformation process. It’s like really, really slow stop motion:
