"Mychal Parker, a sophomore forward on the University of Maryland men’s basketball team, has been granted his release and will pursue a transfer to play elsewhere, head coach Mark Turgeon announced Monday.

Sophomore Mychal Parker has decided to transfer from Maryland.
Maryland assistant coach Dalonte Hill pulled Nick Faust to the side while the freshman made his way down the bench, presumably to offer mild words of encouragement following a dynamic blown dunk from the 6-foot-5 guard. Hill palmed Fausts neck, spoke briefly in his ear, then let him continue to his seat.
Faust planted himself in the padded ACC chair and looked up, a grin fixed on...

Dodd joins guard Seth Allen, forward Jake Layman and center Shaquille Cleare, in coach Mark Turgeon’s first recruiting class as the [...] Related posts:
That Maryland lost a close one to UNC is not the point. The point is that Maryland, a team of underclassmen thought to be at least a year away from anything, was able to push a star-studded, No. 5-ranked team to the brink.
Bravo to that, and to the continued development of freshman seven-footer Alex Len, who basically took on UNC’s All-American frontcourt by himself. Anyway...
Maryland's Alex Len is transitioning quickly from the European leagues to the college game.
I know that there are readers who will find my headline a tad hyperbolic; but I can't help it. I'm excited. It's not every day that a 7'2" man-child with good footwork comes into your life. Such is the case with Alex Len and I'm all in.
I understand the need to temper expectations, and frankly, my expectations are not that high on the offensive end...
Lots to talk about in College Park right now. Tomorrow, we expect to see the long awaited return of Maryland's only true point guard, Pe'Shon Howard. Howard's foot injury has healed quicker than anyone could have hoped, and as a result, Terp fans get to see what this team looks like with a real point guard.
The optimistic side of me expects immediate dividends...
Terrell Stoglin scored 20 points, and Maryland needed a late rally to squeeze past Florida International 65-61 Wednesday night.
The Terrapins (6-3) trailed by 11 late in the first half and by 52-50 with 7:12 left before FIU (3-7) went cold. The Panthers went nearly six minutes without a point, and although Maryland made only two baskets over the final nine minutes, it was just enough...

Gary Williams is out. Mark Turgeon is in. Turgeon is beginning his first season in College Park taking over a team that has only qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 3 of the past 7 years. He's hoping to get it back to the level where they made 11 Tourneys, two Finals Fours, and won a National Title. Although for this season just making the Tourney should be team's goal....

Maryland point guard Pe'Shon Howard will be sidelined up to three months with a broken foot.

Turgeon said Thursday that Howard will probably miss 10 to 12 weeks.
Turgeon says Howard was practicing well after working hard in the summer...
