A few thoughts from future Terrapin Terrell Stoglin

After tallying 11 points on 4 for 8 shooting Thursday night at the Capital Classic at Bender Arena, future Maryland guard Terrell Stoglin took a few minutes to talk about his experience in the event, as well as his plans over the next few months as he prepares to enter his freshman campaign with the Terrapins. Here is what he had to say:

On his impressions of fellow incoming Maryland freshman Pe'Shon Howard, who also competed in the Capital Classic: "Pe'Shon's a good player. He's strong. I like that. He's a good target to hit in the corner for threes. He's a good shooter, so it's just good to play with him."

On the aspects of his game he most wants to work on over the next few months: "My quickness just a little bit more. Just to get a little bit quicker. Other than that, just to continue to work on my shot and my strength.

On the opportunity in front of him to win the starting point guard spot: "That's what I'm looking forward to. I'm just trying to get ready to play."

I had the pleasure of sitting courtside last night, so I got a good look at the newest Terps. Stoglin looked good. He had a smooth jump shot and solid mechanics. If I had a criticism of him, it was that he might have tried a few passes in situations where he could more easily have just taken a layup. Another inch or two of height would probably benefit him in the ACC too. Regardless though, Coach Williams will like this kid and so will we, the fans.

All star type games usually get sloppy, so I'm willing to overlook a few dumb passes and turnovers. I like this Stoglin dude

Stoglin's performance will directly affect Mosley's production next season. If Stoglin is able to be the Terps' backup point guard, behind Bowie, Mosley will not be handcuffed with ball-handling responsibilities. It appears that he will be up to that task, and hopefully Bowie can perform as the starting point guard next season. The Terps look at have a nicely balanced attack going in next season and a good group of capable man-man defenders that will make the press even more potent than it was this past season.
