Live From Maryland Madness
Just a little while ago, senior guard Eric Hayes met with reporters and discussed his thoughts on the final Maryland Madness of his career. The men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced shortly, right after Gymkana finishes up another stellar routine.
Once the introductions begin, each member of the men's basketball team will make an emphatic dunk after their name is called. Or atleast, each player will attempt an emphatic dunk.
Hayes said one of the things the players discuss prior to heading out onto the court is which one of them will miss their dunk. Happens to at least one player every year, Hayes said.
No team-wide pool was organized, but Hayes said each player let it be known who he thought would miss his dunk.
"The two freshmen are probably the favorites," Hayes said. "Just because it's their first time out there and they might shut up a little bit. We'll see."
The two freshmen would be 6-foot-8 James Padgett and 6-foot-10 Jordan Williams, who once shattered a backboard on a dunk in high school.
"We saw that. We tease him about that," Hayes said. "We talk about his dad coming in and unscrewing the backboard. We always tease him about that, but he should be fine out there."
