COLLEGE PARK -- Bud Millikan, the former University of Maryland men's basketball coach whose players included current Terps head coach Gary Williams and assistant coach Joe Harrington, has died, the school said Thursday. He was 89. Millikan, who had retired to the Stone Mountain, Ga., area, coached Maryland from 1950 to 1967, compiling a 243-182 (.572) record. He was a disciplinarian who taught an aggressive man-to-man defense of the sort that Williams favors today. "Bud was a perfectionist," Williams said in an interview Thursday night.

Even before he took Maryland to its first Final Four in 2001 and led the Terps to their only national championship the following season, Gary Williams had long been a respected member of the college coaching fraternity. On Monday, that opinion was validated when Williams was selected to join the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Williams, 69, will be inducted along with longtime NBA commissioner David Stern, former NBA stars Alonzo Mourning and Mitch Richmond as well as former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson and former Indiana Pacers coach and commentator Bob “Slick” Leonard in Springfield, Mass., in August.

Former Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams first walked into Cole Field House 50 years ago. A high school senior at the time, Williams had been invited to College Park from his home in South Jersey by coach Bud Millikan to watch the 1963 NCAA tournament East Regional. "I had seen the Palestra in Philadelphia, which was 9,000 [capacity], but this was 14,000," Williams recalled this week. "I walked in from the street on the top level. It kind of took your breath away. " As much as Williams liked the school and its coach, he fell in love with what was then an 18-year-old building that was among the best and biggest college basketball venues in the country.

The recruiting battle for the Harrison twins that ended with Maryland losing out to Kentucky made me think about Lefty Driesell and some of the tales he has told over the years about going after the likes of Tom McMillen, Moses Malone and Albert King. I figured that the old Lefthander, still kicking up a storm or two at age 80, would be a great source on the subject of recruiting. I also thought it would be great to hear Driesell's stories about how he got McMillen away from North Carolina and how Malone came close to becoming a Terp before turning pro. A year after Driesell arrived in College Park from Davidson, McMillen was the biggest high school star in the country in Mansfield, Pa.  He was on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

GOLDEN OLDIES The 1958 Maryland team, the first Atlantic Coast Conference team outside the state of North Carolina to win the league's postseason tournament, was honored at halftime of yesterday's game. Twelve of the team's surviving members, as well as coach Bud Millikan, took part in the ceremony. FLU BUG CATCHES UP Freshman swingman Cliff Tucker missed the game with the flu. Tucker was the first player sidelined by the worst flu outbreak to hit the College Park campus in more than 10 years.

AS THEY wrote finis to the history of college basketball at Cole Field House the other night, they did everything but play the theme from Field of Dreams. It felt like the closing of Memorial Stadium all over again. And it felt like another farewell to youth. I think I spent half of mine in that building: as a student at the University of Maryland (covering so many basketball games for The Diamondback school newspaper, and taking a few final exams in the place, too -- now, that was pressure)

FOR THREE years, they were the backcourt duo at the University of Maryland: one, the lanky kid with the Prince Valiant haircut named Neil Brayton; the other, a basketball pipsqueak out of Collingswood, N.J., who couldn't shoot much, couldn't rebound much, and couldn't be kept out of the starting lineup. His name was Gary Williams. Thursday night in Anaheim, Calif., Williams will coach his Maryland basketball team against Georgetown in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. Brayton will put down his dental instruments in Chestertown and watch his old teammate, and remember how it was nearly four decades ago. "I think Gary's the same guy he was back then," Brayton said.

COLLEGE PARK -- This is about memory. It's about a former basketball star named Bob McDonald, who was introduced to a big crowd here over the weekend and found himself remembered by almost nobody, and it's about a ghost named Len Bias, who is finally, perhaps, beginning to be exorcised from the premises.When Bob McDonald played for the University of Maryland back in 1961, he led the team in scoring and rebounding. For this, they made him an honorary captain last Saturday and let him stand at midcourt and wave to the crowd.
