Solid Showing For Gregory

The rumor was that Dino Gregory possessed a contagious energy that could spark his team at any given moment. I say "rumor" and "was" because until last night, I had seen only brief glimpses of Gregory's potential.

But against Michigan, Gregory played a vital role in the Terps' second-half surge. For a significant period during the latter stages of last night's game, Maryland utilized a lineup that featured Gregory and Landon Milbourne (both are 6-foot-7) as the tallest Terrapins on the floor. Granted, with Braxton Dupree relegated to the bench for missing class on Monday, Gary Williams didn't have many bigger, taller or other options, but still, it was a bold strategy to go with such a small lineup.

Gregory and Milbourne, however, made it work. Gregory provided the Terps a rebounding presence in the post unlike anything they had witnessed previously this season. He finished with six points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes. Better yet, Gregory took a lot of pressure off Milbourne, which allowed him to flourish as well.

"We need to be physical against big teams and he allowed us to do that tonight," Williams said of Gregory. "He was a factor for us for the entire 26 minutes he was out on the court."
