Booth honored by ACC

Earlier today the ACC announced its 2010 Basketball Tournament Legends Class, which included Marland assistant Keith Booth, who played for the Terrapins from 1994-97. Booth, who helped lead Maryland to four straight NCAA tournament appearances during his time as a player, is joined by former N.C. State guard Rodney Monroe (Hagerstown) and former Miami forward Will Allen (Rockville), and nine other former ACC standout players in this year's class, which will be honored at the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C. in March.

Here is what the ACC's release had to say about Booth: "A third-team All-America selection in 1997 by both the Associated Press and the NABC, helped lead the Terrapins to an 82-44 four-year record and four NCAA Tournament appearances. Booth is still ranked ninth on the Maryland career scoring list with 1,776 points, sixth in rebounds and sixth in steals. He earned first-team All-ACC accolades in 1997 and third-team honors in 1995 and was a second-team All-ACC Tournament pick in 1997. A first-round draft pick by the Chicago Bulls in the 1997 NBA Draft, he played for the Bulls in 1998 when they captured the NBA World Championship. He rejoined Maryland as an assistant for Head Coach Gary Williams for the 2004-05 season and is in the midst of his fifth season as a Terrapin assistant coach and resides in College Park, Md."

According to a release put out by the ACC, this year's class includes nine former NBA draft selections, seven all-ACC honorees, seven all-ACC tournament selections and one Olympian.

Booth and Joe Smith, definitely, in terms of tournaments and winning. No question. Walt Williams will always be the one who was there at the very beginning of the Gary era, key to laying the new foundation. That was major.

How does everyone think Jordan Williams will end his career with the Terps? As a freshman, he seems better than Baxter, but not close to Smith or Booth (only looking at freshman years). I think he has more upside than Baxter and Booth because of his size. His hands are great. He just needs to work on his stamina and develop a short jump or hook shot. He won't ever be a Joe Smith, but I don't we ever will see another Smith.
