Maryland Minute 2.20.11 - Remembering When Bias Beat Carolina, 25 Years Ago

New, 15 comments

Solid win last night. But before we move too far forward, something deserves some looking back:

Remembering Len Bias' Victory at UNC, 25 Years Ago - Slate
Had no idea Bias toppled Carolina 25 years ago last night. Before my time, but bone-chilling nonetheless.

In the clutch, in what should have been a desperate moment, against the No. 1 team, Len Bias took it to the rim backwards, because he could. Because he was that much better than anyone.

...

Len Bias beat Carolina. There was no one to shout it to, nothing to do with the joy but wrap it up and hold it, reverberating, inside the ribcage. Len Bias beat Carolina. It was true, and if you were lucky enough to know it, you would know it forever.

The post may secondarily be about how we consume such moments now, but some of the description of the moment...wow. Definitely worth a read, either to go through it for the first time or to relive those feelings all over again.

John Tillman gets his first win as a Terrapin with a 16-4 blowout of Detroit. Things didn't start particularly well, though, as UDM was up 2-1 after the first quarter.

Nick Faust Was at the Game, Too
Faust was in attendance. No biggie, considering he already signed, but hopefully he got the chance to speak to Whittington and Breunig.
