As a result, Turgeon said he will likely move freshman Shaquille Cleare, who started the past two games in place of senior James Padgett back to the bench, and will use another perimeter player in the starting lineup.

"Shaq didn't play well, but I'm not going to not start him Tuesday because of Saturday's game. It's more about who we're playing," Turgeon said. "Boston College is likely going to start four little guys, so we'll probably start a different lineup. Shaq will still play significant minutes. I'm not sure what we'll do the next game after that [Saturday at Duke]."
The most likely option would be to start 6-8 freshman Jake Layman on the wing alongside sophomore swingman Dez Wells, who led the Terps with 21 points against the Tar Heels, as well as sophomore point guard Nick Faust (City), freshman Seth Allen at shooting guard and Len as Maryland's only big man.
We'll have more on the lineup changes after Turgeon's news conference this afternoon.
