Another Big Man Down

Freshman forward Steve Goins walked out onto the court a few minutes ago dressed in black slacks and a red polo shirt, which, as you might guess, is not proper gameday attire. He also was sporting a black protective boot on his left foot.

A team spokesman said Goins will not dress out for today's game against Bryant due to "lower leg pain." Goins underwent an MRI exam late Friday and the results have not yet returned. The boot is being worn as a precautionary measure, according to the spokesman.

Goins has played in three games this season, averaging 3.0 minutes in those contests, as well as 0.3 points and 0.7 rebounds.

Sophomore forward Jerome Burney also will miss today's game as he continues to recover from a stress fracture in his right foot. Maryland will have 11 players available for today's game.

Thanks for the update Steve.

Please tell Steve Goins and Jerome Burney that we wish them a speedy recovery.

As long as it's not Dino Gregory or Dave Neal missing action, we'll manage.

Maryland will finish with a 15-16 record and 4-12 in the ACC.



How could any parent let their son play for Maryland - with its 10 % graduation rate.
