When the Institute of Notre Dame and Mercy hit the basketball court tonight, the noise will be so deafening that coaches will have to resort to signs or hand signals, and the players will struggle to calm butterflies the size of turkeys.

The 42nd annual meeting between the schools at the Towson Center at 7:30 is expected to sell out for the 16th time in 17 years, with more than 4,300 fans creating a boisterous, pulsating sea of blue on IND's side and of red on Mercy's.
