Terrapins switching up the front court
Maryland freshman forward Jordan Williams returned to the starting lineup Sunday against Florida Atlantic after coming off the bench the previous two games. Williams, who had started the first eight games of the season, was temporarily relegated to a reserve role because of the return of junior forward Dino Gregory from a suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Against the Owls, Williams played 21 minutes and registered seven points, six rebounds and three blocks. He continues to lead the team in rebounding, averaging eight boards per contest.
Gregory came off the bench Sunday to play 19 minutes, tallying two points, five rebounds and three blocks. In three games, Gregory is averaging 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds.
According to Coach Gary Williams, the role shift between Jordan Williams and Gregory was made due to each player's previous track record.
"That was my call," Gary Williams said. "I just thought that maybe a different look would be good for both guys, especially Dino where he played so well last year coming off the bench, to do it again might help him. So we'll see how that goes."
