The Virginia men's basketball team will have a big game on the road Sunday, as the Cavaliers travel to face the Terrapins in Maryland.
Freshman Justin Anderson has been taking on a bigger role for the 'Hoos in recent weeks.
Anderson has scored in double figures in four of his last five games, but the freshman could have been on the other side of this rivalry.
Justin Anderson was a high-profile, high-flying recruit at Montrose Christian High School, as well as a Maryland commitment.
But when Terps coach Gary Williams announced his retirement in 2011, the four-star recruit hitched his wagon to Tony Bennett and the Cavaliers.
The 6'6'' guard was the Maryland Boys Basketball Player of the Year last year, and Anderson expects to hear from the Terrapin crowd Sunday.
Anderson said, "They're going to be rowdy. They're going to be just as rowdy as every other fan base in America. We just have to go in there as one unit, and collectively try to get the victory. It'll be fine. Once I get out there and the ball goes up, I'm in my own world, and I just want to go out there and play hard for my team."
"I expect he'll receive a very spirited or enthusiastic welcome back. We say you put on the blinders," Head Coach Tony Bennett added. "Play the game, play the possession, get into the moment, and that will certainly be what he has to do. But yeah, I'm sure they'll have something for him."
Virginia and Maryland will tip-off Sunday at 1 pm in College Park.
