Maryland Basketball Coach Hopes Cole Field House Can Host One Game Each Season

NO GRUDGE: ACC Commissioner John Swofford on Wednesday said that there is "no ill will" between the conference and UM, "despite lawsuits that are pending between the school and the league" pertaining to UM's exit fee after joining the Big Ten. Swofford: "I wish them well. I hope that it turns out to be a good decision for the people of Maryland." In Baltimore, Don Markus notes Swofford "downplayed any acrimony, and strongly rejected the suggestion that the reason neither Duke nor North Carolina will be playing this season in College Park in men's basketball stemmed from Maryland’s decision to bail on a league that it helped found" in '53. He said that the ACC will treat the school "no differently than any other team" (Baltimore SUN, 10/18).
