Maryland Minute 2.15.13: Looking ahead to Duke (plus recruiting updates)

USA TODAY Sports

The rivalry comes to a close, meeting the Turgeonites, and was Roddy Peters snubbed? (At least one recruiting guru thinks so.)

End of the Maryland-Duke basketball rivalry is fast approaching - Sun
Most of the same stuff we've heard all along, but worth it for the Jay Bilas money quote: "[Duke] denying there's a rivalry is one of the ways to determine there's a rivalry, I think." You don't say?

Other than that, all this achieves is making me wistful for the early 2000s again.

One of the cooler fan traditions out there. Impossible not to love it.

Expect all the other big-time locals, like current commits Romelo Trimble and Roddy Peters, plus perhaps the likes of newly-minted five-star Dion Wiley, to be there too. Duke always attracts the biggest of the big names, for obvious reasons (even almost got Josh Selby on campus back in the day, remember). There'll be plenty of football targets around, too.

Jerry Meyer: Roddy Peters should've been a McD's All-American
Two reasons he isn't: first, he's not that hyped up, whether for legitimate or illegitimate reasons; second, there's that little nagging shoulder injury to deal with. But this isn't the first I've seen scout-ish types big up Peters more than you'd expect, or even more than they're doing in their rankings.

A 2013 guy, Alstork has only mid-major offers and this interest seems fringe at best. It's interesting, though, that Turgeon and his staff seem to be on the lookout for two-guards, especially those who can play some point. Turgeon and his combos, man.
