Maryland guard Stoglin returning for junior season

March 21, 2012 | WNST Staff

After leading the ACC in scoring while holding a strained relationship with first-year head coach Mark Turgeon, Maryland star Terrell Stoglin will return to College Park for his junior season.

“Back for another season Terpnation!” Stoglin posted on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon.

While most agreed the 6-foot-1 Stoglin wasn’t ready to turn pro, the possibility existed after he averaged 21.6 points per game in his sophomore season. Named a second-team All-ACC player, Stoglin butted heads with Turgeon at different points throughout the season, including when the sophomore was benched in the closing minutes of a loss at Duke and voiced his frustration on Twitter following the game.

Given his slight stature, Stoglin will need to improve substantially at the point guard position to improve his draft stock for the NBA. He will also try to lead the Terps back to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2010.
