VIDEO: Gary Williams Court Christened In Ceremony At Comcast Center

The ceremony at Comcast Center to name the court after former Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams was not televised anywhere. ESPN had a game happening beforehand. Comcast SportsNet was broadcasting the game between the Washington Wizards and Charlotte Bobcats. ESPN3 went live 30 minutes before the game against Duke began, but an ESPN spokesperson told us that the ceremony would not be televised.

So really, the only people who could see it live were in the building. That's a shame. It was an incredibly special night for Maryland fans everywhere, and those that weren't at the game should have been able to see it somehow. In case you're one of those people (as I am), here's the video below the jump.

Kudos to Maryland athletics for putting it up so quickly, but it should have been live.

We'll have plenty more on this game throughout the day, so keep it locked to the Duke Vs. Maryland StoryStream. For more on the Terps, please head over to Testudo Times, and for more on this and every college basketball game, check out the SB Nation college basketball hub.
