A lot of younger Crazies don't know that Siena's Jimmy Patsos is a former Maryland assistant, having sweated alongside Gary Williams and Billy Hahn.

But Patsos remembers Cameron, and since he's bringing his Siena team in Friday, he's trying to explain to them what to expect.
He's fairly complimentary, actually, about the crowd and the gym, saying this: "They’re going to know all about [point guard] Marquis [Wright], the Duke fans. It’s a great place to play. It’s small, it seats 9,000, and it’s tight. I’ve said this before, I think it’s one of the last great venues with Boston Garden gone and (the old) Yankee Stadium gone. I think it’s the last great venue and they do everything right there … It’s good for the players."
Well there are a few others, not least of all the Palestra. But that's very nice of him to say.
