April 24, 2012 Sam Cassell Jr. chooses Maryland/Does Not Look Like Alien
Good news, Terrapin fans.
The former son of NBA All-Star Sam Cassell, Sam Cassell Jr., has signed with the Maryland Terrapins. The three-star, 6’4 shooting guard from Baltimore, Maryland opted for College Park after reasoning that he would be closer to home and family. I found that odd only because it’s well documented that his father is from the planet Zordog. One would have thought he’d choose NASA, or perhaps MIT in hopes of creating a craft large enough to reach his father’s home planet (located just on the outskirts of the Crab Nebula, which contrary to popular belief is not the Eastern Shore).
Either way, hopefully he’ll be out of this world good for Maryland and help the team out at the 2-guard position right away. He could cut down on all those minutes Stoglin is likely to see, and by all accounts he’s a solid shooter. Playing for Notre Dame Prep this season, he averaged about 16 points per game, so here’s to hoping his scoring transfers over to UMD. Phone home!
