Xfinity Center is one of the best college basketball arenas in the country. The men’s team at the University of Maryland uses the large crowded arena as a clear advantage in their games. The women’s team, often does not have that large of a crowd to help them in their games. There are a few well selling games, and occasional sellouts against big opponents, but the atmosphere is a bit lower than at a men’s game. Although maybe not as “crazy,” visitors will still witness a good sports program.
