Summary:Earl Badu, #4 on the University of Maryland men's basketball team from 1998-2002, practicing a shot. He was a walk on player and played guard. Coach Williams on Badu: "Earl plays a key role in practice. You don’t become a good team at the end of the year without working hard in practice every day and Earl [and Calvin McCall] both give us that. They were tough to play for the first team. They didn’t have their bad days where they didn’t feel like practicing. As long as they keep that attitude, they can really help us again this year."
