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 the Maryland men’s basketball father/son duo of Ernie and Jon Graham. Ernie played for the Terps from 1977-81, in which he set the program single-game scoring record with 44 points and earned an ACC regular season title, among other accolades. Jon transferred from Penn State to follow in his father’s footsteps as Terp and played in College Park from 2013-15.
On this episode:
- How is the Graham family staying busy at home?
- What does Ernie remember from setting the program single-game scoring record against NC State in 1978?
- Why was it important to Jon to transfer to Maryland and wear his dad’s number?
