One of my favorite Cameron Indoor Stadium memories came on one of my first trips, back in 1986. I came for a game a couple of days before North Carolina was going to open the Dean Dome, against Duke.  In those days, the Cameron Crazies on one side of the gym used to throw tennis balls to their counterparts on the other. I got hit in the mouth, but like many teams (including some from Maryland), I didn't get a call. But I did see Len Bias put up 41 on the Blue Devils that season, on a night when Maryland's starting point guard, Keith Gatlin, sat out with back spasms.

COLLEGE PARK - The thought had to cross the mind of many Maryland fans when sophomore forward Charles Mitchell made layups on his team's first two possessions against Wake Forest on Tuesday night at Comcast Center. Why couldn't he have made a layup or dunk or a jump hook against Duke in the final seconds of Saturday's 69-67 loss to the No. 8 Blue Devils? Funny how the memories of those agonizing misses never made it into Mitchell's head in his team's 71-60 win over the Demon Deacons . Even when he hit a baby hook on the exact same curl play the Terps ran at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the one that hit the back rim and the front rim before falling off with less than a second to play.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland fans are well aware that Saturday's game against No. 8 Duke will be the Terps ' last visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium for the foreseeable future - or at least until Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski has nothing to say about it. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players know that, too, so for them, the nationally televised matchup against the Blue Devils has as much to do with the rivalry's heated history as the current plight...

Feb. 17, 2008, is a day Maryland women's basketball coach Brenda Frese will hold dear for the rest of her life, and it has virtually nothing to do with the Terps ' victory over Duke that afternoon. Sure, it was the last time Maryland won at Cameron Indoor Stadium, but that morning, Frese had given birth to twin sons Markus and Tyler Thomas. Frese's players learned the news hours before tip-off, and they parlayed their enthusiasm into a 76-69 triumph that added to the lore of the heated series dating from 1978.

Which do you consider Maryland's best opening among North Carolina, Duke or Wake Forest? I think it's Duke. The Blue Devils have looked vulnerable since blowing out the Terps at Cameron Indoor Stadium. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/terpsblog)

DURHAM, N.C. -- The routine post-game bustle in the visiting locker room at Cameron Indoor Stadium last night was interrupted by the booming voice of a brash Maryland freshman whose play this season has earned him the right to speak out like a senior. "MIKE WHO?" yelled Greivis Vasquez, who was one rebound away from a triple double in his first trip to Duke. "MIKE JONES! WHO? WHO? MIKE JONES!" North Carolina State @Maryland Saturday,

DURHAM, N.C. -- Less than a minute into the second half last night at Cameron Indoor Stadium, Maryland coach Gary Williams had seen enough. Trailing Duke by 11 points at halftime and by 16 after 56 more seconds had elapsed, Williams called a timeout. For a moment, he stood on the court, behind his team's huddle, trying to come up with something prophetic to say rather than just something profane.

Blacksburg, Va. -- Instead of celebrating his team's shocking overtime win at Duke earlier this month, Virginia Tech sophomore guard A.D. Vassallo headed home to mourn - again. He drove about 90 miles from campus to Lynchburg, Va., where Becky Carwile, his host mother, died from cancer last season. Vassallo, a native of Puerto Rico, lived with the Carwiles while attending high school and prep school. After a 69-67 upset of the Blue Devils - the program's first victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium -Vassallo went home for the anniversary of her death.

Until Maryland lost to No. 8 Duke , 69-67, on a frantic final possession, this was the play you saw over and over. And if you didn't, someone surely sent it to you: That's Terps guard Nick Faust (City) following up a missed 3-pointer by Jake Layman, crashing the weak side, and stuffing the ball through the rim with his right hand as if he needed something to hang on to. Faust finished with just seven points, and the Terps fell in Cameron Indoor Stadium again, but that shouldn't diminish the aerial assault.

Since when is "Hell Night 101" one of the course offerings at the University of Maryland, College Park? The comportment of some of the students after the victory over Duke the other night was abhorrent, embarrassing and absolutely not to be tolerated. It's embarrassing enough when the UM student section chants epithets at opposing players. Kids will be kids, and they're obviously feebly attempting to "out-crazy" the "Duke Crazies" student section at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Last-second basketball plays are like life. You plan as best you can, but you never really know what's going to transpire. So, ultimately, you are left to improvise. That's what Maryland was doing in the final seconds of its loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday while trailing Duke, 68-67. Coach Mark Turgeon wasn't intending to run a play for forward Charles Mitchell, who is more adept at rebounding than scoring around the basket. But the opportunity presented itself for Mitchell to get a good shot.

DURHAM N.C. - More than most of the players on the Maryland men's basketball team, junior guard Dez Wells has a sense of the game's history as well as his own program's place in it. On Saturday night, he left Cameron Indoor Stadium after a 40-minute game that, even in defeat, put an exclamation point on what was of the sport's greatest rivalries. Wells and his teammates were upset that they had lost to Duke, 69-67, but understood that it was simply part of what made many of the Terps-Blue Devils games what are now commonly called “instant classics.” Wells is confident that this one will be recalled someday, too, even though it came in what has been an otherwise forgettable Maryland season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The changing face of the Atlantic Coast Conference was on display again Wednesday during the league's media day for men's basketball. As has been the case at times during Mark Turgeon's first two seasons in College Park, the Terps were a little overmatched. Outnumbered three to one with newcomers Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame in attendance at a downtown hotel, Turgeon faced the same kind of questions that football coach Randy Edsall experienced in Greensboro in July about Maryland leaving for the Big Ten after this season.

Bean catalog come to life.Camping out in line for basketball tickets has been in vogue at Duke for several years now. But nothing compares to what had happened here this season. And, as a result, the tradition might be brought to an end with last night's final home game against Maryland."We appreciate their support, but I think we have to do something about them waiting so long," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said earlier this season.

When Maryland visited Cameron Indoor Stadium last month, Duke fans smugly expressed indifference at the impending end of a Terrapins-Blue Devils series that was once among the hottest in the country. "Don't come back," they chanted at the Terps. But there is no such exaggerated nonchalance at Maryland, where the rivalry is not fading away quietly. In College Park, it still seems personal. Maryland (17-7, 5-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) may be leaving the ACC to join the Big Ten in 2014, but players and fans still define the team's season partly by how they stack up against Duke (22-2, 9-2 ACC)

From Maryland's perspective, the basketball rivalry with Duke was born in the late 1990s when Gary Williams brought the Terps from the bottom of the ACC to the top. During the 2000-01 season - when the teams met four times, including in the ACC tournament and at the Final Four - it was considered the most heated college rivalry in the country. From Duke's perspective, the rivalry between the Blue Devils and Maryland has been downplayed - if not completely dismissed. According to their fans, who still chant "Not our rivals...
