Student attendance at Comcast Center has dwindled in recent years. Only for plum conference games -- Duke and North Carolina -- is The Wall full of boisterous students causing angst for opponents. It got so bad late in February that Gary Williams called out the fans, as did alum and ESPN personality Scott Van Pelt. At Texas A&M, Turgeon was frustrated at times by paltry attendance. He cant be satisfied with the entrenched fan base at Maryland; hes got to court the students to rebuild the energy around the program.
