`It got everybody fired up'

Williams puts on sideline sideshows, but with good intent

COLLEGE PARK -- His antics sometimes provide a sideshow during Maryland basketball games. But coach Gary Williams and his players insist there is a method to his occasional sideline madness - to the kicks and shouts and wringing of hands.

Consider Thursday's night game, when Williams flung his pinstriped suit jacket to the Comcast Center floor and jawed at an official as the first half was ending in the 89-65 win over Morgan State. Williams said after the game that he hated giving the Bears the two free throws that resulted from Maryland being assessed a technical foul.
