Maryland forward Ivan Bender did not travel to Cancun due to eligibility issue, per report

Maryland forward Ivan Bender was not eligible to play in Maryland's first three games of the season and did not travel to Cancun due to an NCAA eligibility issue, per The Washington Post's Roman Stubbs. This shouldn't damage the Terps game plan as the 6'9 Croatian is not expected to be part of coach Mark Turgeon's rotation. Bender will be eligible to play in Maryland's matchup Dec. 1 against North Carolina, according to Stubbs.
