Who Do You Root For?
After Landon Milbourne's breakthrough performance last night against Michigan, Gary Williams addressed, again, what makes Milbourne such an endearing player. Throughout the early stages of this season, even as Milbourne struggled to adapt to his new position, Williams stood by Milbourne. He praised Milbourne's work ethic, his effort and his skills, even if those skills seemed more suited to play a position other than the one in which Milbourne has been placed.
In the postgame press conference last night, Williams again spoke highly of Milbourne, though this time it was not in Milbourne's defense, but rather in support of the praise that was being heaped on the 6-foot-7, 207-lb. power forward after a 12-point performance against a quality foe.
"Our guys root for Landon," Williams said. "They want him to play well. Players root for certain players, there's no doubt about it. And as a coach, you try not to, but you do. You do root for certain guys to be successful. You're fair, but you are rooting for certain guys. For Landon, I think this was a very big step for him this year."
So now I pose the question to you: Who are the players on this Maryland squad that you pull for more than the rest? And, if you feel so inclined, please explain why.
