Season Recap[edit]

The Terrapins opened their season with a victory over San Francisco in the Preseason NIT – Gary Williams' 400th career win.[2] They beat Tulane in the preseason tournament before losing to Kentucky in the semifinals. They defeated Notre Dame in the consolation game.

They would go on to win all of their non-conference home games, extending their home out of conference winning streak to 72 games. Maryland did not lose a non-conference game in Cole Field house in the 1990s.[3]

The team lost its ACC opener at NC State and dropped two more to begin league play 0-3. After the poor start in conference, however, the Terrapins went 11-2 over the remainder of the season to finish 2nd in the ACC. The Terrapins' signature victory of the season came when they defeated #3 Duke in Cameron Indoor Stadium, ending an 18-game win streak, 46-game home winning streak, and 31-game ACC home winning streak for the Blue Devils. Following the win, Maryland students rioted on the college park campus.[4]

In the ACC Tournament, the team advanced to the championship game, where they lost to Duke.

Receiving a #3 seed in the 2000 NCAA Tournament, the Terrapins defeated #14 seed Iona 74-59. However, in the second round Williams' team looked "helpless" as #6 seed UCLA put on an offensive showcase and won easily 105-70, one of the worst tournament losses in Maryland history.[5]

In the summer of 2000, the University of Maryland broke ground on the Comcast Center.
