The Washington Post's Alex Prewitt reports that former Terps Basketball Walk-On Earl Badu has passed away at age 33.
Reflecting back on Earl's years on the Terps squad, I fondly recollect calling for Earl to get in the game along with about 14,500 other Terps fans filling Cole Field House during the magical 2002 National Championship season. "We want Earl, We Want Earl," would be Terps fans' siren song to Gary Williams, in the hops Gary would get Earl at least a couple of minutes during some secure Terps contests.
Rest In Peace Earl. I am reminded to enjoy every day, every game I can play in or spectate.
