More than 30 years after playing at Maryland, Ernie Graham was asked Thursday night whether he thought the day would come when his jersey was honored by the school. "Honestly, no," Graham said. On Thursday night, Graham -- who also played for Baltimore's Dunbar --  joined 16 other Terps whose names and numbers appear on banners hanging from the Comcast Center rafters. “It still feels good to be home - finally,” he said. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake attended the pregame ceremony.

COLLEGE PARK - He wears the same No. 25 jersey worn by his father, a number that hangs from the ceiling of Comcast Center as a reminder of a career that included a record-setting performance 35 years ago. That is where the on-court similarity ends between Jon and Ernie Graham. If his father was known for being a high-volume shooter during his career at Maryland, the son is quickly gaining a reputation as a high-energy role player who does everything but shoot. After transferring from Penn State last summer and being granted a hardship waiver by the NCAA in order to play immediately rather than sit out, Graham's role has grown dramatically over the past month.

The Maryland men's basketball program has picked up a commitment from Penn State transfer Jon Graham, a source close to the situation confirmed to The Baltimore Sun. Graham, a Calvert Hall graduate, decided to transfer from Penn State after a redshirt sophomore season in which he averaged 1.9 points and 2.7 rebounds. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward is the son of former Maryland great Ernie Graham. Graham was a two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection. He led the Cardinals to the 2010 Baltimore Catholic League tournament championship, averaging 18 points, 10 rebounds and 3.4 blocks as a senior.

Jonathan Graham arrived at Maryland from Penn State in late summer amid uncertainty about his playing status with regard to the NCAA and his potential playing time among a crowded frontcourt. After getting an unspecified hardship waiver that cleared him to play shortly before the season opened, Graham spent most of the first eight games waiting for a chance. It came Sunday in a 77-75 loss to George Washington, when a combination of early foul trouble for a few of Maryland's big men and a lack of effort by many wearing white uniforms at the Verizon Center left Terps coach Mark Turgeon no other option.

More than a quarter century after he was forced to resign in the months following the cocaine-induced death of basketball star Len Bias, longtime Maryland coach Lefty Driesell was officially - and permanently - recognized Tuesday with the unveiling of a bronzed bas relief sculpture in his honor at Comcast Center. In a ceremony that attracted a few hundred friends, family and fans and brought back close to 50 players - including Tom McMillen and Len Elmore, who spearheaded the effort to get their former coach recognized - Driesell, now 81, was both emotional and typically cantankerous in accepting the honor.

Johnny Rhodes has often been overlooked in the discussion of Maryland's greatest all-time players. That is not surprising, since Rhodes rarely got a ton of credit even as he helped the Terps begin their turnaround under Gary Williams during the mid-1990s. As much as Joe Smith and Keith Booth were the most celebrated players by fans and the media, and for good reason, Rhodes was just as respected by his teammates and coaches. Rhodes finished his career in College Park as one of the best all-around players in program history.
