The University of Maryland will celebrate their 100th season of Basketball Sunday against Michigan so Vinny and Haynie will be having Terp legends on throughout this week.  Lefty Driesell joined the show earlier and recalled some of his fondest memories at College Park.  He told several recruiting stories and talked about his favorite players and teams throughout his 17 seasons at Maryland.

Lefty was the first coach to win more than 100 games at four different NCAA Division I schools.  At the time of his retirement in 2003, he was the fourth-winningest NCAA Division I men's basketball college coach, with 21 seasons of 20 or more wins, and 21 conference or conference tournament titles.  He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018.
