Choi could return against New Hampshire
Sophomore forward Jin Soo Choi could return to Maryland's lineup Friday night when the Terrapins host New Hampshire at Comcast Center, Coach Gary Williams said Thursday. Choi missed Tuesday's win over Fairfield with a sprained right ankle he suffered four days earlier during Maryland's regular season opener.
"I’m hoping he will be" able to play Friday night, Williams said of Choi. "He ran straight forward yesterday. If he can get involved in practice today, yes, he’ll play."
Williams also said sophomore forward Steve Goins participated in practice Wednesday and is progressing with his lingering knee injury. Goins underwent surgery on the knee in August and had been unable to workout with the team in recent weeks due to persistent discomfort. Goins sat out both of Maryland's regular season games, as well as its exhibition contest Nov. 3.
"I talked to (Goins) this morning and the big thing you find out after you’re on the court is, in his case, 'How did the knee react?'" Williams said. "He says he’s going to practice today. So that’s good. We can use a big body ... He’s done some things in practice, but it’s always the knee flares up as a result of whatever he does. Hopefully, he’s a little further along in his rehab."
