from the article in the Saturday morning News and Record…..
“What’s in a name? Plenty at the Maryland’s arena”….
They named the basketballl court at the Comcast Center the ‘Gary Williams Court’ and former Maryland Terrapin men’s baketball coach Charles ‘Lefty’ Driesell isn’t too happy about it and I agree with Lefty…..Read up on the front page of your Saturday morning N&R sports section and you’ll see more/get more…..One key sticking for me and Lefty is, that in Gary Williams last 15 years as the Maryland Terrapin head coach, only 21.4 of his players graduated….While Lefty was there, his players graduated at a rate approaching 80%….
More on Lefty vs. Gary…..
On the topic of the day, I still side with Lefty Driesell over anything Gary Williams is saying or doing…Let’s be honest here, I never did like Gary Williams and I always thought Charles ‘Lefty’ Driesell was entertaining…Good coach and teacher too…Won 100 or more games at 4 different schools/colleges and took four different teams,(Davidson, Maryland, James Madison and Georgia State), to the NCAA tournament….
The ‘Gary Williams Court’. Charles ‘Lefty’ Driesell says this court should not be be the ‘Gary Williams Court’….Wonder what Debbie Yow would say about that? More times than not, Lefty didn’t have a leg to stand on and that was especially true after he kicked that chair, but this time, I think Lefty is right….A good topic for the weekend, “Lefty is Right”….
*****Oh, BTW, Gary Williams’ team did win the 2002 NCAA Championship while he was at Maryland, but a 21.4% graduation rate, that stinks….*****
