With the Terps playing well in the NIT Tournament as they attempt to earn a championship appearance, things got harder for the University of Maryland.
Head coach Mark Turgeon announced Monday in his media session that freshman point guard Seth Allen, who averaged 7.8 PPG in his first season in College Park.
Turgeon said that Allen will not play Tuesday in their NIT quarterfinal match against Alabama Tuesday night on ESPN, and likely will be done for the season.
Allen, who had struggles with turnovers earlier in the season, had played well in the final stretch of the season leading into the ACC Tournament and NIT playoffs.
He finished in double figures in four of his last fives games, including 13 points in their second round game against Denver.
A combination of Pe’Shon Howard and Nick Faust will likely see action at point guard.
