Richaud Pack Joins, Michal Cekovsky Signs, Charles Mitchell Leaves

Lots of news coming out of College Park. 

Charles Mitchell is leaving to be closer to his ailing Grandmother. I wish him the best.  Regardless of the circumstances the optics are bad for Turgeon.  Yes, Mitchell's departure seemingly has nothing to do with Turgeon and is of a personal nature.  Yet, it's another kid who didn't work out. In isolation, it's understandable but in the larger scheme of things, not so much.  The Terps will now be reliant on Damonte Dodd, Jonathan Graham and two freshman to be our frontcourt players.  Yikes. 

Richaud Pack is grad transfer from NCA&T.  He's a welcome addition to a back court that will be run by a freshman.  Pack's experience will help dramatically and give the Terps another ball handler.

Michael Cekovsky is a super-talented 7 footer who could really be a difference maker next year.  He's athletic with great size and can shoot.  He looks to be an Alex Len type but perhaps more athletic (!).

Seth Allen To Transfer. What's Next?

"The night is dark and full of terrors".  So goes the admonition in HBO's Game of Thrones.  It also seems to be an appropriate theme for Mark Turgeon's offseason.  First he jettisons "dead weight" players who had underwhelmed: Faust, Cleare, Peters.  On paper, it looks like some housekeeping.  Apparently, Turgeon neglected to check with his remaini [...] Read More »

My spider-sense is tingling.  I have a horrible feeling that this is going to turn out to be true.  Nothing is confirmed.  Turgeon is denying it (not surprising) and some players have come forward anonymously and said that Seth Allen has requested his release. this would be a brutal blow for the fans and the coaching staff. [...] Read More »

Women's Final Four: Terps vs Notre Dame

Today's thread is about the Lady Terps quest to slay the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Gary Williams's selection to be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame.  This is the big one. He'll be enshrined with all of the greats.  Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, John Wooden, Dean Smith, Gary W [...] Read More »

Terps Basketball 2014 Outlook

I can't recall any time since 1990 with the exception of 1996 (the year after Joe Smith left) where I wasn't excited about the Maryland's prospects for the upcoming basketball season.  There was always a reason for optimism.  Either new recruits coming in or the anticipation of existing players getting better; the future always looked bright.  Unti [...] Read More »
