Mark Turgeon Hopes Maryland Basketball Plays In Baltimore, Too


On the heels of news that the University of Maryland football team will play games in Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium in 2013 and 2014, Maryland basketball head coach Mark Turgeon expressed his desire to take his team up I-95 to Charm City.

Turgeon told The Washington Times that he hopes the athletic department can arrange some Baltimore games in the coming years:

"I think Maryland’s been locked into a couple of these games, one in D.C.," Turgeon said. "My hopes are to play a game in D.C. and a game in Baltimore each year as long as we can afford it and the athletic department can afford it. That’s the whole key. If not, we won’t do that, maybe play one in D.C. one year and one in Baltimore the next. I’d like to do that."

The Terrapins haven't played in Baltimore since the Comcast Center and its 18,000 seats opened in 2002.
