A Maryland broadcaster for 35 years, the Voice of the Terps remembers a 1995 game at Cameron Indoor Stadium when Gary Williams was in the hospital with pneumonia and Mike Kryzyzewski was out with a back injury:
"Billy Hahn was coaching for Maryland Pete Gaudet was coaching for them, and as the teams were warming up before the game, I said to Joe Smith, 'You're going to get about 35 tonight.' He said, 'Points or rebounds?' I said, 'It doesn't really matter.' He got 41 [points, a career-high]. ... Nothing will top [the rivalry], either here or down at Cameron. It's too bad everyone can't go down there and see a game. I think that's one of the great college atmospheres. There might be something in the Big Ten to replace it, I think time will tell. But there's nothing like Maryland-Duke."
