Ernest Graham and Johnny Rhodes to be Honored at Comcast Center

We already heard back in November that former Terp Ernest Graham (1978-81) would have his name and number honored in the Comcast Center rafters this January. Today, the Baltimore Sun reports that Johnny Rhodes (1992-96) will be honored as well:
The school has not made an announcement about Rhodes or Graham (Dunbar) — apparently because it is still finalizing its plans. Both players said they had received word directly from the athletic department. Other Maryland insiders had heard the news as well.

"It's indescribable, really," said Rhodes, who played for Gary Williams and set Maryland's single-season record for steals in 1996. "I'm just definitely thrilled and honored to be part of the guys who are up there and have had these great careers."

While no official announcement has been made, Graham's ceremony is expected to be the January 15th home game against Georgia Tech, while Rhodes's banner will be unveiled at the February 21st home game against Miami.
