- BustingBrackets.com conducted a nice interview with Pete Volk of Testudo Times, discussing Maryland’s season in review, Mark Turgeon’s first year, and a few other recruiting blurbs. Good interview, though
- TheBleacherReport.com, somehow, has a staff covering every nook and cranny of college basketball, so they’ve obviously broken down Maryland’s 2012-2013 roster already.
- Just who, exactly, is Evan Smotrycz? ESPN.com’s Eamonn Brennan has an idea.
- Some mixed news for Georgetown and their recruit, Devonta Pollard, as it looks like his mother is going to be doing all his recruiting. (SBNation)
- SBNation.com also has some news about Georgetown’s non-conference schedule for the next year. I have to be honest in saying I absolutely love this move. Why? Hint: I’m a sucker for inspirational speeches about battling cancer.
- Ben Standig over at CSN washington explains why, despite his roots, Thomas Robinson isn’t likely going to find his home in Washington, D.C. following this upcoming NBA draft.
- In the coming years, college hoops is going to take some hits on the rivalry scale. So Georgetown fans: enjoy your final bouts with Syracuse, because that rival is about leave you for another very shortly.
- The Wizards coaching search/decision continues, and WUSA9.com’s Kevin Jones appears to believe that Sam Cassell ought to be the frontrunner. The aliens have invaded.

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!
