Dienhart: A sneak peek at 2014-15 Big Ten hoops " Big Ten Network
"The Terps’ have the talent to battle during their maiden Big Ten voyage, with Wells leading the way. But they lack the defensive edge and star power to contend. The roster is over-crowded, so the staff somehow will need to make some room in the offseason. The 7-0 Cekovsky is the top newcomer in a very strong four-man recruiting class."

RGIII: ‘Coach supports his players, New Year’
John Thompson, Jr.: "You know, Gary’s paid his dues, and definitely, I thought he was an excellent coach. So I’m kind of happy. But I don’t want to be too happy for anybody at the University of Maryland, because it may spoil my image." [Pete]
