Stoglin lauded for career-high games
For his back-to-back career-high performances against Virginia Tech and N.C. State last week, Maryland guard Terrell Stoglin has been honored as the ACC’s Rookie of the Week.
Stoglin scored 25 points, was 10 of 10 from the free-throw line and dished out six assists in the Terps’ 91-83 loss at Virginia Tech on Tuesday. He followed that up with a 25-point, nine-assist performance in the 87-80 victory over N.C. State Sunday at Comcast Center, hitting nine of his 10 free throws, as well.
It’s the first time since Nov. 15 that a Maryland player has been drawn one of the conference’s weekly honors. Sophomore center Jordan Williams was named ACC Player of the Week following his third double-double of the season. (He now has 20). The 6-1, 185-pound Stoglin is the first Terp to draw Rookie of the Week honors this season.
Meantime, Duke’s do-it-all point guard Nolan Smith was named ACC Player of the Week for a third time, helping Duke reclaim the No. 1 national ranking (aided by losses among the top four) by averaging 25 points, seven rebounds and four assists in convincing victories at Virginia and over Georgia Tech.
Heading into Wednesday’s game against Florida State (19-7, 9-3), Maryland (17-10, 6-6) is knotted with Boston College at sixth in the ACC standings but would lose a tie, having been swept by the Eagles in both meetings.
Maryland has just two remaining chances to pull off upsets in the four games that remain in the regular season: Wednesday against Florida State, which is third in the ACC standings, and Sunday at North Carolina (20-6, 10-2), second in the league standings and ranked 19th in this week’s national poll.
