BETHESDA, Md. - The Friends of Maryland Basketball (FOMB) hosted its annual end-of-the-year dinner Thursday at the Congressional Country Club to celebrate the 2016-17 season.
Stan Goldstein, president of FOMB, welcomed 150 guests by sharing a myriad of the team and individual accolades accomplished for the men's basketball program.
Longtime Maryland basketball radio analyst Chris Knoche hosted the annual event and shared some of his most memorable moments from the season.
Head coach Mark Turgeon introduced his coaching and support staff and thanked the FOMB supporters for their continuous commitment and dedication to the program.
“You guys inspire us," Turgeon said. "We have another great schedule put together for next year and we can't wait to have you by our side. I love being the coach at Maryland. College basketball is really changing. We've been successful and we are trying to figure out a way to sustain that success. We are happy, but not satisifed."
Turgeon also recognized seniors Damonte Dodd and L.G. Gill for their contributions to the Maryland Basketball program. Maryland won 24 or more games and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for a third consecutive season in 2016-17.
