Led by Towson head coach Pat Skerry, college basketball coaches across the country wore blue pins on their jackets Saturday in support of the fight to bring awareness to autism. 

Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon was one of those coaches who showed his solidarity with Skerry, wearing the puzzle piece-shaped pin on the left lapel of his jacket during the Terrapins' 80-60 win over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va.

Autism affects 1 in every 88 children and 1 in every 54 boys, including Skerry's son, Owen. For that reason, Skerry and Marshall head coach Tom Herrion led the push for the display across college basketball on Saturday.
