Basketball Fans Warned Against Rioting

from YoLoPey's Flickr photostream

If any of you readers are college basketball fans, then you may know that the University of Maryland Men’s Basketball fans are known for their unruly behavior when it comes to big games, especially those versus Duke University. Personally, I am a huge Duke basketball fan and have been for as long as I remember. On Twitter, I follow DukeBasketball, which gives “coverage of Duke Basketball from The Chronicle, Duke’s independent daily student newspaper.”

Duke had a game at Maryland on Wednesday, the second, and the the Duke basketball Twitter account tweeted a very interesting link. It was a copy of a e-mail from Maryland’s Vice President of student affairs, Linda Clement, reminding them that the acts of “fire setting, vandalism, and other destructive acts on campus” performed last year after Maryland beat Duke at home, are not acceptable in the eyes of administration.

Thankfully (for Duke fans and the University of Maryland campus), Duke won the basketball game on Wednesday night, making fan-riots less of a concern for the University.

Check out the e-mail here.
