Maryland Stock Report: Will game against Miami help Terps find their form?

New, 22 comments

Maryland desperately need a win, will Miami be our huckleberry?

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

I'm just imagining that scene in Tombstone where Johnny Ringo is drunk in the street screaming "I want your blood." Well, except it's Mark Turgeon screaming "I want a win" and Jim Larranaga just says "I'm your huckleberry."

Awkward image, I'm sure, but Maryland are desperate for a win in any shape or form and hopefully Miami obliges.

So what does this mean for the stock report? Well, it's terrible timing.

Stock Rising:

Jake Layman -- This is solely because I don't think it could have gone any lower than it was. He had 18 points and did some things we hadn't seen in a while. I dunno, I'm grasping at straws here to find positives.

Stock Holding:

Mark Turgeon -- The team could have given up, and while they didn't win, they didn't get blown out by Pitt which it looked like it could have happened. He didn't let his team quit, and in a lost season, that's important.

Damian Prince -- I'm not confident he's coming to Maryland, but he hasn't officially dropped Maryland either. Mike Locksley and the rest of the staff need to make sure Prince lands in College Park.

Stock Falling:

Roddy Peters -- I know he's a freshman, but giving him just five minutes? That's harsh given how he's playing, especially given how Seth Allen was playing.

Seth Allen -- Speaking of, 2-for-9 from the field and 0-for-5 from behind the arc isn't a good look. I appreciate the 3-to-1 A/T ratio, but better decision making can relate to shooting too.

The lack of Damonte Dodd - I want to see more, if only so I know for a fact he isn't ready. He's more of the traditional center, in the Alex Len mold, that allowed Charles Mitchell and Shaq Cleare to thrive, at times, last year.
