Maryland’s loss to Duke on Monday Wednesday night was the sort of game Terps fans have grown accustomed to this season: too many missed free throws, too many wasted possessions in the second half, too little experience.

But all the rest of the night was a rousing success. Observers raved about the crowd noise, the school announced the first sellout of this season, the Gary Williams stuff was pitch-perfect, and the student section acted like Maryland student sections are supposed to act.

Thus, some of my favorite images. And yes, it starts with the above photo, by The Diamondback’s Charlie DeBoyace. Sure, the phrase is nothing new, but dang if it doesn’t still rouse the masses. More Diamondback photos from the night are here.
