NCAA Tournament 2016: Maryland students, fans welcome Terps home after they clinch Sweet 16 berth

A happy welcome home for the South Region semifinalist Maryland basketball team.

The Maryland men's basketball team isn't done yet, but the Terps have a lot to be happy about after advancing to the Sweet 16 with a win against Hawaii on Sunday night.

The Terps spent the night in Spokane, Wash., and then hopped on a plane on Monday morning – or Monday afternoon, Eastern time – for about a four-hour voyage to Baltimore. Then they boarded a bus for College Park, and they had a nice welcoming committee waiting them at Xfinity Center upon their return (via Lowell Melser of WBAL):

The Terps have precious little time to celebrate. They'll be in College Park for just a few days before getting on another plane, this one destined for the South Region semifinal in Louisville, Ky. (Maryland hasn't yet made a final decision on when it will depart for the regional games, but it will be Tuesday or Wednesday.)

They'll face top tournament seed Kansas once they arrive, with tip in for that game set for about 9:40 ET on Thursday night. The Terps opened as 7-point underdogs in that game, although the line is getting smaller already.
