Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. W? Copy this:
Over the course of her four seasons at Maryland, senior Marissa Coleman has grown used to playing in front of enthusiastic crowds comprising several thousand people at Comcast Center. On Sunday, the ninth-ranked Terrapins beat Rutgers in front of 12,861, the ninth-largest crowd in ACC history. Tomorrow evening, an even bigger crowd is expected when Maryland goes for its 33rd consecutive home victory in a game against No. 7 Duke.

But every once in a while -- like on Thursday night, when the Terrapins beat Georgia Tech in front of only 1,361 fans at Alexander Memorial Coliseum (capacity: 9,191) in Atlanta -- Coleman is reminded just how special those big Comcast Center crowds are.
