While the Terps were busy beating Duke on Saturday, the entire student section performed an epic flash mob (complete with a little Harlem Shake action) during breaks in the game.
The atmosphere at Comcast Center is truly one of the best in the country for this type of thing.
The whole thing was the brainchild of Carrie Blankenship, assistant athletics director of marketing at the University of Maryland.
Blankenship got in touch with dance team coach Megan Piluk, and the idea took off like a rocket.
Students would normally be allowed to enter the facility at 4:30 p.m. for a 6 p.m. basketball game, but at 3 p.m. on Saturday, the doors were opened.
By 3:30, over 3,000 students had already settled in their seats.
“I got on the microphone, welcomed everyone and introduced Megan,” Blankenship said. “We walked them through the entire flash mob. You never know if they’re gonna listen to you or not – but they were very receptive, they (bore) with us and they really caught onto the idea.”
