Maryland Terps Basketball

In case you havent noticed, Terps bball is back.

Turgeon has had an unexpectedly rocky road the past 3 seasons and has been something of an enigma to fans. He seemingly brought in highly touted freshmen classes that never seemed to materialize on the scoreboard.

Many "star" players left early and disappointed: see Terrell Stoglin, Seth Allen, Shaquille Cleare.

There were rumors that this was make or break time for Turgeon.

He came into this season armed with the 8th ranked in-coming class including McDonald's all-american point guard Melo Trimble.

How the hell does Turgeon land a mcdonalds all american when we struggle to make the NITs?

The last McDonalds all-american that came to the terps was Mike Jones under gary williams watch and he was servicable in his later years.

Trimble is more than serviceable. Trimble is the real deal in all aspects.

Jake Layman - he is a better version of nik caner-medley. at 6'9" he can D up, he can stroke the 3 or put it on the floor and get to the hoop and finish. He also brings heart and energy to the floor and NBA scouts to the seats.

Dez Wells - a great transfer grab by Turgeon from (xavier? seton hall?). He is the main scorer on this team and will allow Trimble to get rest while he becomes the primary ball handler. Dez has been injured for teh past 4 weeks and trimble's minutes are over 30. Once Dez comes back, trimble can be used a little less.

This team has all the parts to be dominant. I havent even mentioned the european 7 footer, close to 7 ft Dodd, this dude named Smocklyzk who is 6'9" and is a slightly less talented version of layman. there is this guy Nickens or something that just spots up and is automatic from the 3.

This team is just insane. Everybody has a role to play and everyone plays it to perfection.
