The University of Maryland men’s basketball program postponed a scheduled media availability Friday and released the following statement from head coach Mark Turgeon regarding the Yahoo Sports report alleging former Terps basketball player Diamond Stone received money from an agent while enrolled at the university:
“Late last night we were alerted of a report associating one of our former student-athletes with an agent. We are extremely disappointed, and we will fully cooperate with any investigation. I do not have a relationship with Andy Miller or anyone from his agency, and at no time have I ever had a conversation with Andy Miller or his agency regarding any Maryland basketball player. We remain steadfast in upholding a program of integrity that reflects the values of our University community.”
