GW Urges Players To Watch History

In a few hours, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the next president of the United States, and when he is, Gary Williams hopes all of his players take in that historic moment.

Not live, of course. The Terps will be in College Park preparing for tonight's game against Virginia. But after yesterday's practice, Williams suggested each of his players find a television set and tune in to the inauguration ceremonies.

"It's an important day," Williams said. "It means more than just a president, you know, a president being sworn in. This is significant in the history of the country, so hopefully the players will all watch this, because it's one of those things 30 years from now, if you didn't watch it, I think you'd be a little upset if you hadn't watched it. We all have the opportunity to watch it on television."

I hope all of you get a chance to see it, as well, either live or on television. I'll post a few more pregame items in the afternoon, but for now, let's all devote our attention to something much more important than college basketball.

Based on the headline, I thought this was going to be about George Washington University.
