How'd He Get to College Park?

Here's a YouTube video that can explain it better than us:

Career Highlight:

Susskind's mother is a survivor of ovarian cancer, and he's done his part to raise awareness of the disease. Last year, he got the team to take pictures wearing shirts supporting his family's 5K event meant to raise awareness and money for ovarian cancer, and he's done so again this year.

Last year, Team Suss & Us raised $13,422, nearly three times their initial goal.

Dream Season:

Susskind scores his first career points in college.

2014-2015 Prospectus:

Like Spencer Barks, Susskind will likely only see playing time at the beginning of the year against easier opponents. Maryland has a number of talented scholarship players at guard, so it's unlikely Susskind will see significant playing time later on, but if the team is as good as some hope it can be, he'll get his opportunity to score points early on in the year.

Up Next:

Our next player is the only one on the roster guaranteed to have less playing time than the walk-ons.
