Welcome back to ouTTakes, a podcast that’s here to discuss Maryland sports from an inside perspective. Our goal of the podcast is to shine a different light on Terps sport figures and allow you to get to know them as people.

This time, I was joined by Eric Hayes, who played for Maryland men’s basketball from 2006-10.

We discussed:

  • What was it like playing for former head coach Gary Williams?
  • How tough was it to go against Stephen Curry in the 2007 NCAA Tournament?
  • Hayes recounts Maryland upsetting No. 1 North Carolina on the road during his sophomore season.
  • What was it like to defeat Duke on senior night and then win the 2009-10 ACC regular season title?
  • Does anything compare to the Maryland-Duke rivalry?
  • Hayes gives insight on his professional career overseas and what led him into coaching
  • What went through Hayes’ mind when he saw the 2020 NCAA Tournament was canceled?
