Mosley's Discovery

After turning in a pretty sub-par performance Wednesday night against Miami, freshman guard Sean Mosley did his best to make up for it yesterday against Florida State.

His line against Miami: 19 minutes, zero points (0 for 3 shooting), two rebounds, one block.

And against Florida State: 25 minutes, 13 points (5 for 7 shooting), five rebounds, two steals.

He did miss a pair of free throws in overtime, but other than that, it was a pretty solid performance. Mosley played a significant role in helping the Terps make a comeback in the second half. With Adrian Bowie frequently being shuttled in and out for protective reasons (he was playing with considerable foul trouble), Mosley emerged as a go-to player.

The Terps trailed by 11 with 12:07 remaining. A little more than five minutes later, Maryland trailed by just two points, having gone on a 14-5 run. Mosley scored 10 of those 14 points.

"He’s finding out there’s a lot of strong players in this league that have his strength, so he’s got to do some other things that he didn’t have to do in high school," Gary Williams said of Mosley's continued development. "His strength allowed him in high school to dominate some games, just his strength. That doesn’t work here, and I think he’s had to make that adjustment. But I think he’s done a really good job of that."

Is there going to come a point in the season where moving Sugar Sean into the starting line-up makes sense? Perhaps in place of Hayes or Bowie? I get the feeling this team needs some points off the bench and with Bowie starting, that is something we lack.

I'm thinking the exact same thing. I would tread lightly with moving Hayes into a reseerve role. He seems so fragile a "demotion" may turn him into an absolutely worthless player.
