COLLEGE PARK--No, Maryland isn't commemorating LeBron James' recent scoring outburst against the Charlotte Bobcats, as junior Nick Faust jokingly said on Saturday afternoon at Comcast Center.

In anticipation of Maryland final ACC regular season game, the program has set up a design in the student section that reads "61" to honor the 61 years that the Terrapins have been a part of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Each seat has a large piece of colored paper placed upon it, which one would assume the students would raise up in unison at a certain point in Sunday's game against Virginia.

"I thought it was pretty cool," junior guard Dez Wells said of the display. "Sixty-one years is a long time, you know, so for us to be parting ways with the ACC it's bittersweet, but there's always good basketball ahead."

Tip is at 12 p.m. at Comcast Center.
