Maryland basketball got new shoes from its mysterious locker room box

The Terps had us guessing.

Maryland basketball tweeted out this picture of a box at noon on Selection Sunday.

What could possibly be in this Under Armour box? Maryland found out it’s a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, but the box remained unopened — at least publicly. We had some guesses Sunday afternoon:

  • Is it 7 seeds? — Thomas Kendziora
  • Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley are just gonna jump out and do the running man — Jared Goldstein
  • It’s a life-size replica of whichever stadium Maryland will be playing its first tournament game in. Kevin Plank’s got connections, and had it made in advance. — Ryan Connors
  • It's gonna be a singer to serenade Melo Trimble for no reason — Thomas Kendziora
  • New Big Ten refs — Matt Ellentuck
  • A win over Northwestern? - Lamar Johnson

Our friends Ben and Ashley were on the right track.

Our friends on Twitter had guesses too:

And the obligatory Seven reference:

Update 11:30 p.m.: Notre Dame got a similar box, and it contained shoes.

Update 11:30 a.m.: Maryland got nice new shoes, too!
