The Maryland Terrapins took care of business in a big way on Saturday night, upsetting No. 2 Duke in a 83-81 home thriller.

Sitting at 17-7 prior to the game, the Terps were looking for the win to really beef up their Tournament resume, and they got it.

Their fans understood what was at stake throughout. After the monumental win, this victory-starved student body did not stop at merely rushing the court — no, they literally burned the town down.
