Dodd: Of the five Maryland players who were there Saturday night, and were briefly used together late in the game by Patterson High coach Harry Martin, I expected the least from Dodd. Which is why I, like a few Maryland fans who I spoke with after the game, were pleasantly surprised by the 6-10 kid from the Eastern Shore. He got stripped a couple of times of the ball, meaning that he needs some time in the weight room, but he didn't have the deer-in-the-headlights look that you'd expect on that kind of stage for the first time. (Not that the gym at T.C. Williams High is close to the Capital Centre, where the game used to be played.) I am not sure what Turgeon's plans are for Dodd next season, but he looks like he's a pretty good athlete who could become a contributor in a couple of years.
