  • NEW FLOOR PLAN: MARYLAND BASKETBALL COURT TO DON BANK LOGO

              The Univ. of MD has agreed to a three-year deal with
         First National Bank of MD worth "slightly more than"
         $900,000, according to Mark Asher of the WASHINGTON POST. 
         The agreement, the "largest" sponsorship deal ever by MD's
         athletic department, "will place two commercial logos in
         opposite corners of the basketball court at Cole Field
         House."  Although a contract "has yet to be signed," Univ.
         of MD AD Debbie Yow said the bank's signage would begin
         appearing on the court for the team's November 14 home
         opener against Western Carolina.  FNB VP/Corporate
         Communications Reese Nank said the logo, which will include
         the state flag, is "the centerpiece" of the deal.  The money
         from the deal "will help" MD's athletic department offset an
         anticipated $200,000 to $250,000 shortfall in projected
         football ticket sales this season.  MD joins GA Tech as the
         only schools in the ACC to sell the placing of a logo on
         their basketball courts (WASHINGTON POST, 10/31).
