The Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball team Signifies the University of Maryland in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Contest.
Maryland, a founding member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), abandoned the ACC from 2014 to join the Big Ten Conference.
Gary Williams, who coached the Terrapins from 1989 to 2011, directed the program into its greatest victory, such as two consecutive Final Fours, which culminated in the 2002 NCAA National Championship. Beneath Williams, Maryland appeared in eleven straight NCAA Tournaments from 1994 to 2004. He retired in May 2011 and was replaced by former Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon.
The Terrapins played what many believe to be the greatest Atlantic Coast Conference game ever — and one of the greatest college basketball games ever — the championship of this 1974 ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament, in which they lost 103–100 in overtime to eventual national champion North Carolina State. The match was instrumental in forcing the expansion of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship, hence enabling for at-large bids along with the addition of more than one team per conference. This Maryland group, with six prospective NBA draft picks, is regarded by many to be the best team to not have participated in the NCAA tournament.
