Recapping ACC Basketball Media Day

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland took part in their final media day as a member of the ACC on Wednesday. We recap all of the highlights from the event.

Maryland participated in their final ACC basketball media day on Wednesday, where they were picked to finish 7th in the 15 team league. There were several highlights from the event, which we've captured below:

I think just about everyone is looking forward to Friday's events in Cole. Mark Turgeon also said again that Friday's Maryland Madness will serve as a dry run for possibly holding an annual game there each season:

Also, this was hilarious. Gotta love Lefty:

Turgeon also said again that he hopes Nick Faust will be the player Maryland puts on the opposing team's top defender:

Alex Prewitt also asked ACC Commish John Swofford about Maryland only playing Duke in Durham:

So something that has never happened isn't unusual, especially when you factor in that the same thing applies to UNC and NC State. Check out Alex's story on that here.

This year's ACC will feature 15 teams for the first time, playing an 18 game conference schedule. Adding Notre Dame, Syracuse and Pitt will make the ACC the premier conference in college basketball this season. It also means Maryland has a tough road in conference play. We'll have more on that in the coming days.
