Sophomore point guard Terrell Stoglin wasn't in the starting lineup against UNC-Wilmington, with freshman Nick Faust (City) taking his place. But after the Terps failed to score on their first three possessions -- two turnovers and a bad shot by Faust -- Stoglin was off the bench and in the game with a little over 17 minutes left.
There was no reason given by an athletic department spokesman for what appeared to be Stoglin's benching. He and new coach Mark Turgeon certainly have distinctly different ideas about how the point guard position is supposed to be played, with Stoglin thinking its called the points guard and Turgeon, a former point guard himself under Larry Brown at Kansas, looking for someone who thinks pass first.
It will be interesting to monitor how their relationship proceeds.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
