Seth Allen likely to play for Maryland against Tulsa

The point guard looks to make his return sooner than expected.

A bit of good news out of Maryland practice today -- presumed starting point guard Seth Allen may make his return from injury sooner than expected, as coach Mark Turgeon said Allen is expected to play against Tulsa on Sunday if things go according to plan.

Allen won't be expected to play much, and the Terrapins will have to be careful not to rush him back, as foot injuries are difficult to recover from in basketball. The sophomore fractured his foot in late October and was expected to miss 8-10 weeks, with a return date between December 25 and January 8. It appears that he may be on the sooner end of that spectrum, although this could be considered a "rehab game" of sorts -- limited minutes against easier competition.

Allen averaged 7.8 points, 2.3 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game in 36 appearances last season, with seven starts. He was widely expected to be the starting point guard for the team this season, and it will be interesting to see if he can supplant true freshman Roddy Peters, who is averaging 6.7 points and 3.8 assists (with 3.0 turnovers) per game this year.
