    The University of Maryland warned students about engaging in out-of-control celebrations should Maryland beat Duke in basketball Wednesday.

    The rival Blue Devils come to College Park Wednesday night.

    The school sent out a letter Tuesday telling students to celebrate with class and dignity and to discourage others from being destructive.

    Two years ago, 28 students were arrested during riots that followed a Maryland victory over Duke.
