Gregory out again

Junior forward Dino Gregory is not present at Comcast Center and will not suit up tonight for Maryland in its regular season opener against Charleston Southern. Though no press release was issued, a team official confirmed Gregory will not play due to an unspecified violation of team rules, the same reason he sat out last week's exhibition game against Indiana (Pa.). Freshman forward Jordan Williams will start in Gregory's place.

Gregory acknowledged this summer that his eligibility for the upcoming season was in question because of a charge of academic dishonesty. Maryland did not acknowledge the reason for Gregory's suspension last week, saying such information was protected under the Buckley Amendment, so it is not known whether the academic charge Gregory acknowledged this summer and his current suspension are related.

Maryland Coach Gary Williams said Thursday that he had no update on Gregory's status.

Terps are looking decent. The headlines tomorrow will be all about Jordan's debut. Good step forward but let's keep our opponent in mind. I do wish the best for Gregory because we will need him. We can get by the next few weeks but i hope we hear a real "decision" much sooner than that.

They really can't afford to lose Gregory. They need a veteran presence with tons of energy in that front court to prop of the two freshmen. Hope this thing gets resolved in Gregory's favor quick.
