PHOTOS: Maryland Basketball Team To Wear Special Shoes For Gary Williams Wednesday

Wednesday is a special day for the Maryland basketball program. Not only do they have a date with rival Duke at Comcast Center, but they will also hold a public ceremony to name the court after legendary former coach Gary Williams. It's going to be a crazy atmosphere.

With all this happening, Under Armour, the unofficial sponsor of Maryland athletics, has gotten involved. The Terps players will wear these special commemorative shoes when they take on the Blue Devils.

You may think I'm mocking Under Armour for these, but you'd be wrong. These are actually pretty awesome and a perfect demonstration of what the company can do to help brand Maryland athletics. Sixteen different football jerseys is overkill. A few shoe combinations for a special occasion? That's more like it.

Can't wait to see the Terps players showing these off during the game.
