I wanted to bring up a point about Maryland needing a #2 scorer, and where that is going to come from in the future. If you look at our two best teams over the past decade, you had multiple scoring options. The national championship team had Dixon, Blake, Baxter, Wilcox, etc. You look at the team from a couple years ago you had Greivis, Hayes, Milbourne, Jordan Williams. Even off the bench that year Cliff Tucker was putting up points.
This year we have been looking and searching for a #2 scorer behind Stoglin. We hoped it would be Faust. Then when we realized Faust wasn't ready we hoped it would be Mosley. Obviously Mosley still is not a dependable scoring option on a winning team.
I want to look past this season into next season. Our two seniors leaving are Mosley and Weis. Our three top recruits coming in are Cleare, Layman, and Allen. My question is going into next year, who can Maryland depend on to be our #2 scorer? Is Faust going to step up and be that guy? Is Len going to step up and be that guy. Is a freshman like Cleare or Layman instantly going to be that guy? We are excited for Maryland basketball, and we are excited for the future of our program, but our biggest problem may be a big problem for longer then just this season.
