Maryland basketball Mark Turgeon Lila Bromberg / Testudo Times

It’s the 134th episode of the Testudo Times Podcast, and it’s time to preview the new basketball season.

Thomas and Lamar joined me to go over these topics and more:

  • The team’s optimism and unity coming into the season, and how it could help the team start fast.
  • Anthony Cowan, Darryl Morsell and Bruno Fernando are all one year older, and have more experience. What are the expectations for each player, and what could they be if they hit their ceilings?
  • Maryland has a ton of freshmen to integrate, but what about the Big 3: Smith, Ayala and Wiggins? What will they be contributing to this team and what might their ceilings be?
  • Does this team have depth from players seven on down that Mark Turgeon can rely on?
  • How do they figure in a Big Ten in which many teams look like them?
  • What are the expectations for this team, and can they meet them?

It’s been a while since there’s been this kind of optimism about Maryland basketball, and that creates for a fun atmosphere going forward. Let’s get the season going. Enjoy the show!
