CHARLOTTESVILLE —- Yes, it’s Senior Day at John Paul Jones Arena.

It’s also a day for plenty of Maryland fans to make the leisurely drive down Route 29 for a vital game.


The upper third of a couple student sections are filled with Terrapins supporters; I just mingled with a few about a half-hour before tip, and it’s clear they love the fact the Virginia band plays “Rock & Roll, Part II.”

The song has already been tossed out there twice, and there have been more than a few “Hey, you ——.”

So while Virginia students are on “spring recess” from “the Grounds,” Maryland fans are making themselves quite comfortable at Thomas Jefferson‘s University.

So the mixed crowd —- right now, it’s probably 85/15 for Virginia, but a boisterous 15 for Maryland —- is on hand for today’s festivities. Here are the lineups:

MARYLAND (18-11, 7-8 ACC)

G-22-Adrian Bowie
G-21-Greivis Vasquez
G-14-Sean Mosley
F-1-Landon Milbourne
F-35-Dave Neal

VIRGINIA (9-17, 3-12 ACC)

G-15-Sylven Landesberg
G-4-Calvin Baker
G-23-Jeff Jones
G-24-Mamadi Diane
C-21-Tunji Soroye
