To the dismay of area basketball fans, the Maryland and Georgetown men’s teams are not scheduled to play each other in the future — but for one night, former stars of those schools will compete.
The Alumni Basketball League has scheduled a matchup between “The College Park Boys,” a team of former Terrapins, and “DawgTalk,” a team of former Hoyas, for Saturday on the pavilion court at the University of Maryland’s Xfinity Center.

“After four or how many years you are at your school, you build a fan base,” said Chris Wright, who played at Georgetown from 2007 to 2011 and serves as the general manager of “DawgTalk.”
“It is a great opportunity for us to reconnect and also build pride and unity in our schools,” Wright said.
“DawgTalk,” will feature Aaron Bowen, Jason Clark, Greg Monroe, Jagan Mosely, Rodney Pryor, Henry Sims, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Greg Whittington and Wright.
Travis Garrison played at Maryland from 2002 to 2006 and is the general manager of “The College Park Boys,” which will include Melo Trimble, Terrell Stoglin, Anthony Cowan Jr., Damonte Dodd, James Gist, Ekene Ibekwe, Sean Mosley and Byron Mouton.
Getting Maryland and Georgetown on the court in men’s basketball hasn’t been easy. The two schools are separated by less than 20 miles, but since December 1979, the Terrapins and Hoyas have only played against each other five times and one of those times in 2001, they were forced to because it was an NCAA tournament game.
“It’s not really a rivalry between Georgetown and Maryland because we have not played enough,” said Wright. “The players from Georgetown and Maryland go against each other in summer league, but we need to play each other every year. I hope this alumni game helps to rekindle the matchup.”

My side hustle made me up to $2,000 in one job and I didn’t even lift a finger to get the work done
The best part it he didn't even need to show up to get the job done and ended up charging up to $2,000 for the work.1My side hustle make me up to $2,000 and in one job I did not even show up to work, while I also made $160 to have a tv mounted and didn't lift a fingerCredit: TikTok/@ericmartinmoney
Eric Martin's TikTok account says he owns a concrete and a sub-contracting business.
He doesn't always rake in thousands, however.
He recently posted a video showing how he charged a client $200 for a job and ended up netting an easy $160.
Here's exactly how the savvy entrepreneur did it.
He said a customer asked him to mount a 4K smart tv on the wall. He said he could do it and would charge $200 for the gig.More on Side HustlesBOAT LIFE I earn up to $150,000 a year from rental side hustle FORD LORD I turned my side hustle into a business that flips old cars into $200,000 motors
Martin then called a man called Juan Carlos, who sub-contracts for him.
He offered him $40 to mount the tv. Juan Carlos said he could do the job, according to Martin, but didn't have a ride out to the customer's home.
So the TikToker jumped in his car and give Juan Carlos a ride over and watched him go to work.
Martin didn't lift a finger - instead he just sat back and watched the job get done and collected the side hustle pay day.Most read in moneyCASH BOOST How COLA increases your payment by $92 each month - will we see another boost?EXTRA MONEY Thousands of Americans eligible for direct payments worth up to $2,550PAYDAY TIME Exact dates Social Security, SSI and SSDI are paid each month in 2022SHUT UP SHOP Major update as Walmart announces it is shutting hundreds of stores
"This is why sub-contracting is THE best side hustle. Give it a shot," he told his followers.
And in another video post the savvy side hustler described how he made a cool $2,000 and never even showed up to do the job.
He said a client messaged him about pouring a new floor for their garage.
The clients then gave him the measurements for the floor and they agreed to pay Martin $5,000 to get the work done.
Martin then revealed he called a sub-contractor and offered him $3,000 for labor and materials to do the job.
"I never even once showed up to the job site. Now you tell me a better side hustle than that!"
He received some positive feedback for the latter video.
One comment said: "Yo! I literally saw this video a month ago. I’ve been in concrete all my life, started doing this about 20 days ago. My first two jobs profit $4800."
Some said the price he charged was too much.
But another said: It’s interesting to see people say five thousand is a lot. I couldn’t even find a sub to touch that for 5k much less 3k.
Not everyone was on board with the idea of sub-contracting the work out.
One poster wrote: "you are smart to take advantage of the innocent people, what goes around, comes arround. You loose many future clients whit this video. [sic]"
While that may remain to be seen - between the two jobs he did make a pretty profit of $2,160 without actually doing any of the manual labor involved.Read More on The US SunMONEY TROUBLES Lindsay Lohan’s mom declares herself bankrupt again with $66k debtSHOWDOWN DEMAND Joe Rogan’s dad demands to confront him as bombshell legal papers revealed
