Greivis Vasquez's senior night court

Not a bad look for Greivis Vasquez's final appearance at Comcast Center, eh? I'm told the student section will be receiving "Gold Rush" t-shirts, not that they'll particularly need t-shirts to get excited about this game.

"This is why you come to Maryland," Gary Williams wrote on his Twitter account Wednesday morning. "To play in games like these. 9pm tonight. I want Comcast packed."

Williams also discussed the emotions involved in senior night during his weekly appearance with CSN's Chick Hernandez.

"Let's be honest, there's years where it's easy to move on," Williams said with a laugh. "This won't be one of those years. It'll be tough. There'll be a lot of emotion displayed. And the problem is, you don't want a big let down to start the game. Sometimes there's so much emotion in that little ceremony there before the game that it's hard to get started. But against a team like Duke, if it's hard to get started, you might not get another chance."

Wow, that's quite a different look from normal. Are those all shirts making the "M" and numbers?

Eric, they're poster board on the seats that you hold up when told.

It's cool to see the 21, but also to see the 1 and the 5 (even though it looks like 51) ;)

Vasquez may get all attention, but this is also the last night for Seniors Eric Hayes and Landon Milbourne.

Uh, why is 35, James Padgett's number spelled out, or are they going to use everybody's number?

It's 32, not 35, for Jerome Burney, who's graduating, although not active this year because of a series of injuries.

@alewis856 Ah, many thanks. No wonder he wasn't showing up on the UM Terps roster.
