JON GRAHAM( Karl Merton Ferron, Baltimore Sun / January 4, 2014 )
High points: The son of Terps scoring legend Ernie Graham was certainly a pleasant surprise after transferring from Penn State. He was consistently one of Turgeon's best interior defenders and gave the Terps some toughness that was severely lacking. Graham did a lot of the dirty work that several of the regulars didn't seem to want to do.
Low points: Graham finished the season getting less time than he did earlier in the year, including not playing at all in the loss at home to Syracuse. He was not a threat offensively and often passed up shots that Turgeon said Graham was capable of making. Until he put in a rebound follow in the ACC tournament game against Florida State, Graham had not scored from the field in seven straight games.
What's ahead: It will be interesting to see what Turgeon does with Graham for next season. He came to College Park with the promise of a scholarship for just his junior year. Now, thanks to three transfers, he could have a chance on earning a scholarship for his senior year as well, depending on how many more players Maryland brings in.
