Led by Juan Dixon, Steve Blake and Lonny Baxter, Gary Williams' squad entered the 2001-2002 season ranked #2 in the AP Poll. The Terps delivered on that lofty ranking by going 25-3 during the regular season and 15-1 in the loaded ACC.
That dominant ACC run was enough to give Maryland the #1 seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament. Wins over college basketball elites like Kentucky, UConn, Kansas and Indiana gave Maryland the schools first National Championship.
Four of Maryland's top 5 players would go on to the NBA. But none was more important than the skinny guard from Baltimore, Juan Dixon.
"Nobody ever did what he did at Maryland. There was no MOP of the Final Four except for Juan, there was no ACC Player of the Year very often, he was the program's all-time leading scorer, made two Final Fours, that type of thing. When they talk about all the great players at Maryland, I think Juan has to be at the top of the list."
