Maryland guard Stoglin declares for NBA Draft after year suspension handed down

Posted on 30 April 2012 by WNST Staff

(Updated: 10:15 a.m.)

Looking primed to return to the NCAA tournament next season with a loaded recruiting class coming this fall, the University of Maryland will suffer a major blow to those hopes.

More details are emerging about the reason for leading scorer and second-team all-ACC guard Terrell Stoglin declaring for the 2012 NBA Draft on Sunday. The university announced Monday morning that Stoglin and Mychal Parker, who recently announced his intention to transfer to another school, had been suspended for a year due to “a violation of the University of Maryland Student-Athlete Code of Conduct.”

Averaging 21.6 points per game to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in the 2011-12 season, the 6-foot-1 Stoglin will exit College Park after his sophomore season.

Stoglin’s relationship with first-year head coach Mark Turgeon was strained at times last season, which included an incident in which the guard publicly questioned the coach’s motives after he was benched in the final minutes of a loss at Duke. Turgeon openly shared his frustration with Stoglin’s willingness to be coached at different points but had recently expressed confidence on AM 1570 WNST that he would be a better coach for the Tuscon, Ariz. native next season.

The mercurial guard — along with Parker — will instead depart after one season under Turgeon.

“Being a University of Maryland student-athlete carries a tremendous honor and responsibility,” director of athletics Kevin Anderson said. “As much as we appreciate the effort these two young men gave to the program this season, they were unable to live up to that responsibility. We’re disappointed, but hope they use this as a learning experience.”

It is believed that Stoglin’s suspension stems from academic issues.

The deadline to declare for the NBA Draft was Sunday, with the draft itself to be held on June 28 in Newark, N.J

Based on Stoglin’s action on his Twitter account Monday morning, it became more apparent the announcement was not based solely on his desire to play in the NBA.

The Terrapins beat the Demon Deacons, 70-64, on Jan. 11 in the only regular-season meeting between the teams this year.Terrell Stoglin had 20 points, with James Padgett and Sean Mosley adding 15 each in the victory that marked the first league game of the year at Comcast Center.

Sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin earned second team All-ACC honors on Monday in balloting by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Stoglin remains atop the list of scoring leaders in the league with a 21.2 points-per-game average. He had 25 points in the last game of the regular season on Sunday against Virginia, becoming only the third Terrapin in history to reach 1,000 career points in only his second season.

Nick Faust earned a spot on the 2012 ACC All-Freshman Team on Monday. Faust has averaged 13.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals in the seven games since he returned to the starting lineup after the season-ending injury to Pe’Shon Howard. It marked the third straight season the Terps have put a student-athlete on the league’s All-Freshman Team (Jordan Williams in 2010, Stoglin in 2011). Faust has six double-figure games in the last seven.

The Terrapins are the eighth seed in the ACC Tournament for the sixth time. Maryland is 5-3 in matchups with Wake Forest, including five straight victories. The Terps lost their first three tournament meetings with the Demon Deacons (1954, 1961, 1963), but turned things around with a win in the 1973 semifinals. The other wins have come in 1984, 2001, 2004 and 2009.

Harris and forward Travis McKie… Harris is fourth in the league with 16.8 ppg and is also the team’s top 3-point shooter, having connected on 48-of-111 attempts (.432) this season… McKie is sixth in the conference with 15.9 ppg and is averaging a team-high 6.9 rebounds per game.

Wake is the best free-throw shooting team in the league (.736), led by Harris (.856) and McKie (.730)… Sophomore guard Tony Chennault is third on the team in scoring (9.3 ppg) and has a team-high 85 assists… Fifth-year senior forward Nikita Mescheriakov is fourth on the team with 7.7 ppg.

Maryland’s Stoglin named second-team All-ACC, Faust All-Freshman

Posted on 05 March 2012 by WNST Staff

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Terrell Stoglin earned second team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors while Nick Faust was voted onto the ACC All-Freshman team in balloting released Monday by the league office.

Stoglin, a sophomore guard from Tucson, Ariz., finished the regular season as the leading scorer in the league with a 21.2 points-per-game average. He was joined on the second team by Kendall Marshall of North Carolina, Michael Snaer of Florida State, C.J. Leslie of NC State and Erick Green of Virginia Tech.

Should he remain atop the ACC’s scoring list, it would be the sixth time a Maryland player has led the league in scoring. Joe Smith (1995), Walt Williams (1993), Len Bias (1985 & 1986) and Albert King (1980) are the others.

Stoglin was an All-Freshman Team selection a year ago.

Faust, a guard from Baltimore, is among the league’s freshmen leaders in scoring (8.5 ppg), rebounds (4.0 rpg) and assists (2.1 apg). It marks the third straight season a Terrapin has made the All-Freshman Team (Jordan Williams 2010).

Faust is averaging 13.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals in the last eight games since returning to the starting lineup after Pe’Shon Howard’s season-ending knee injury. Faust has scored in double figures in six of the last seven games and seven of the last nine.

He was joined on the All-Freshman Team by Duke’s Austin Rivers, Ryan Anderson of Boston College, Dorian Finney-Smith of Virginia Tech and Shane Larkin of Miami.

Rivers was a first team All-ACC selection and was joined by Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes of North Carolina and Mike Scott of Virginia.

The third team was comprised of Seth Curry of Duke, C.J. Harris of Wake Forest, Lorenzo Brown of NC State, Kenny Kadji of Miami and Mason Plumlee of Duke.

Voting was conducted by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Maryland Hosts Virginia For Senior Day Sunday

Posted on 04 March 2012 by WNST Staff

#24/rv Virginia (21-8, 8-7) at Maryland (16-13, 6-9)
Sunday, March 4, 2012 | 2 p.m. | Comcast Center
ACC Network | Terrapin Sports Radio Network

  • Maryland plays host to Virginia on its traditional Senior Day, when the Terrapins honor the graduating seniors of the Class of 2012. The game also has an effect on the standings in the Atlantic Coast Conference, with Maryland in eighth in the league with a 6-9 record and Virginia in fourth at 8-6 before the Cavaliers’ Thursday-night game at home against Florida State. Maryland is 13-3 this season at Comcast Center.
  • Based on the standings prior to Thursday’s games (Florida State at Virginia, Virginia Tech at Clemson), the Terrapins could finish in either the seventh or eighth spot in the league. A climb to seventh would need a Terps’ win Sunday over Virginia and a pair of Clemson losses (Tigers close Sunday at Florida State).
  • Sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin had 16 points on Wednesday against the Tar Heels. That brought his season total to 610 points, marking the 18th time in school history a player has had 600 points or more in a season. The last one to accomplish that plateau was Greivis Vasquez, who had 647 in 2010. Stoglin also comes into today’s game with 986 points in his career and has a chance to become only the third Terrapin in school history to reach 1,000 points in his first two seasons. Joe Smith had 1,290 points from 1993-95 and Tom McMillen had 1,283 from 1971-73.
  • Freshman Nick Faust had a career-high 17 points on Wednesday at North Carolina. Faust has been playing his best basketball of the season down the stretch and has five games in double figures in his last six outings. His previous season-highs have come against some of Maryland’s best competition of the year, with 15 points at Duke and against Colorado at the Puerto Rico Tipoff. Faust leads the Terrapins in assists (63) and is second to Sean Mosley in steals (28).
  • Junior forward James Padgett had his second double-double of the season with 13 points and 13 rebounds against the Tar Heels. The 13 boards were the most of the season by a Terrapin player. He also had five offensive rebounds, giving him 102 for the year. It marks the eighth time in school history a player has grabbed 100 offensive rebounds in a season.
  • With 16 wins, Maryland has most likely advanced its string of consecutive winning seasons to 19. The last time a Terrapin team finished below .500 was 1992-93, when the Terps went 12-16 in the final year of crippling NCAA sanctions. Each school in the ACC has had a losing season since the Terps (including Duke, 13-18 in 1995 and North Carolina, 8-20 in 2002).
  • Maryland lost to Virginia, 71-44, in the first meeting of the season between these two teams on Feb. 18. The Cavaliers have won two straight in the series, including a 74-60 win in last year’s game at Comcast Center. Maryland still leads the overall series between the teams 106-69.
  • Virginia comes into the game 24th in the most recent Associated Press poll. The Terrapins’ last win over a ranked team was a 79-72 win over then-No. 4 Duke on 3/3/2010 in Comcast Center.
  • The men’s basketball program today will pay tribute to senior players Sean Mosley, Berend Weijs and Jon Dillard, along with managers Donald Darang and Phil Baldwin. Ceremonies will be held during pregame.

    Scouting the Cavaliers

  • Virginia comes into the game 24th in the most recent Associated Press poll, with a 21-8 overall record (8-7 ACC) following a 63-60 loss to Florida State at home on Thursday.
  • Senior forward Mike Scott leads the team in scoring (17.3 ppg) and rebounds (8.2 rpg), and is shooting 57.4 percent from the field, best in the ACC… Sophomore guard Joe Harris is also scoring in double figures with 11.4 ppg and is shooting 39 percent from 3FG.
  • Virginia ranks highly in several defensive categories, coming in at second nationally in scoring defense (52.6 ppg), 14th in field goal percentage defense (.390), and second in the ACC in 3-point field goal percentage defense (.287).
  • The Cavaliers are also third in the conference is turnover margin (plus-1.62) and assist-turnover ratio (1.1), with junior guard Jontel Evans leading the team and ranking fifth in the league with 3.8 assists per game.

    Upcoming

    The Terrapins will leave Tuesday, March 6 for the 2012 ACC Tournament, to be played at Philips Arena in Atlanta, with its open practice day coming on Wednesday… Maryland will be the No. 8 seed in the tournament and will play the 9th seed at noon on Thursday… The winner of the opening first-round game will face the No. 1 seed at noon in Friday’s quarterfinals.
