Williams, Stoglin draw ACC honors

By Liz Clarke

Maryland’s 2010-2011 regular season fell short of expectations, with the Terps (18-13, 7-9) finishing under .500 in conference play and seventh in the league standings.

Nonetheless, post-season honors have started rolling in for the Terps’ top scorers, sophomore center Jordan Williams and freshman point guard Terrell Stoglin.

Williams was named Monday to the all-ACC first team, while Stoglin earned a spot on the all-freshman team.

Williams trailed only Duke’s senior guard Nolan Smith, a unanimous pick, in total points awarded in voting by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Rounding out the first team: Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech,
Kyle Singler of Duke and Reggie Jackson of Boston College.

Williams, who averaged a team-high 16.9 points per game, was the ACC’s top rebounder (11.6 per game) and third best in the nation. His 23 double-doubles set a single-season school record.

Stoglin, who averaged 11.6 points per game, was honored as ACC Rookie of the Year two weeks in a row. He scored 20 or more points in four of the Terps’ last four games. Also named to the all-freshman team: North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes and Kendall Marshall, Travis McKie of Wake Forest and C.J. Leslie of N.C. State.

Also Monday, FOXSports.com and Yahoo! Sports named Williams to their third-team all-America squads.

After taking Sunday off, the Terps returned to practice Monday to prepare for their first-round ACC Tournament meeting with N.C. State in Greensboro Thursday at 7 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

With a victory, Maryland would advance to a 7 p.m. quarterfinal against No. 2 seed Duke.

A few well deserved, individual honors to provide a few bright glimpses during what was a dark and sad season for Terps basketball.

Congratulations JW!!... I bet the same blowhards who cry about Garys recruiting were complaining that he got JW instead of Lance Stephenson....well look where Stephenson is today....GONE....now where is Cincy????

All I know is that Gucci and Ed Hardy tshirts for $15 bucks is a sweet deal.

JW is not going to the NBA. He literally has no back to the basket moves and no face up game. If he were to leave, he wouldn't be a 1st round pick.

Congrats to the two of them! That's outstanding!

Correct. If Williams did leave he'd probably join Lonny Baxter in Russia playing ball.

The future is bright. Too bad this year has left a sour taste.

I don't think Williams is going pro. He's just not ready right now. The Terps could be really good next year if Faust turns out to be an actual shooter, like he's supposed to be.

A few thoughts:

I agree with the posters that think J-Will will return. However, I think his defense is his biggest liability when going to the next level.

Stogs is the rare MD player (this year) that doesn't look hesitant. However, I suspect that there is some resentment among teammates that he is becoming a "ball hog". He has shown that he can get his shot whenever he wants, now he has to learn to get his teammates involved. This is the facet of Pe' Shon's game that should not be undervalued. Also, this facet is the mark of a true leader.

Stogs could become John Gilchrist, part II or a shorter quicker GV. He seems to like the in-your-face style of coaching that GW brings, so I will go with the latter.

Faust, Gibbs and Bruenig all are fundamentally sound players with a tough streak. This might be GW's best recruiting class (fit for MD, not star ranking) in a very, very long time.

Mychal Parker might not be Mike Jones, part II afterall...Yay.

I hope Ashton Pankey steps up next year because Padge is not improving. Pankey was coached by Bob Hurley, SR. at St. Anthony's...he should have very good fundamentals, his offensive game is the only question mark.

Jordan is making a huge mistake if he goes Pro... he is far from ready. he needs to polish off his offensive game a little more and he needs to get better at the FT line. He goes Pro, he will be another Chris Wilcox (Remember that un-polished star in the making)... he is a trade baited journeyman, stop gap player that has faded away in the NBA...... he needs another year.

Let's get real. Jordan Williams made the All ACC Team. Stogs made the FRESHMAN team. The problem is not that we don't have some good players, it's that we don't have enough. Talent level is measured by the top one or two guys. It's measured by the depth of quality. We did not have one player besides JW who would even be honorable mention. That just is not good enough. Our seniors were a joke and our bigs collectively (JW aside) are inept.

Posted by: petecard | March 8, 2011 12:16 PM | Report abuse

Well, go ahead and minimize Jordans achievement if you must but I noticed that UNC (who many of Garys detractors point to as being the standard in ACC recruiting ) had NOBODY on the list


On the Frosh team, I also noticed that Duke had NOBODY on it...

So UMD placed 2 players on the All ACC or Frosh team and to some thats an example that we dont have enough talent....is there an ACC team that has more than 2 players on the lists? Nope

Posted by: TerpfanMA | March 8, 2011 12:25 PM | Report abuse

Alright TerpFan, so if we have all acc talent, then that means that Gary is a bad coach, not a bad recruiter, since he has the players, but finished near the bottom of the ACC, right?

Just so you know, the kid listed above Stog on the All-ACC team, with more votes, is from Va/MD/DC area, and said he wanted to come to MD, but Gary never came to see him. Kendell Marshall, great job recruiting Gary, and he isnt a one and doner, what's his excuse? Oh and he made the 3rd team All ACC team. Btw, where is Nolan Smith from?

TerpfanMA,,YUP, Unc has 4 guys on the All ACC list, didnt you learn how to read at MD when you got your degree?

Amazing how blind Garylovers are, they cant even read facts now, wow!

Posted by: cm88 | March 8, 2011 12:58 PM | Report abuse

He NEVER said he wanted to come to UMD....he said he would CONSIDER UMD.....there is a mile of difference between the two and now the kids dad has an ax to grind because Gary didnt stroke him....you dont know any of the facts surrounding this kid...maybe it was well known that he was headed to UNC and Gary wanted to spend his time more wisely....

Better get back to your call sheets! You have at least 3 more years of hate and bitterness in front of you

cm88...look at yourself dude! Your blind hatred of Gary Williams is leading you to insulting people and using sexual slurs against people you dont even know.....on top of that, your job performance is slipping because you spend all day on here posting your nonsense.......are you pleased with yourself?....does your boss appreciate how you spend your time? What about your wife and kids?

Get a life man!

hahah, see you look like a ding dong, so now you go off on personal attacks. Yeah, I did make off-color remarks to you and Barno, because thats all you guys can do to people, including me, so then I just have fun with it. So lighten up Francis :)

Man, I really did touch a bone with you or you honestly finally realize how stupid you sound, great points you made about the all ACC team, haah... sorry buddy.

Btw, my division is the top one in the company, my fiance thinks its funny that I argue with you dingbats all day long, and I am pleased with myself that I am a true terp fan that loves the team and not just a little kid that idolizes the coach, just to answer your questions :) hahaha!

Ok, one down, now we just need Barno to give up :)

Terpfan, as I said, talent is measured by depth and that is where we fall way short. Way, way short.

A few years ago when we were relatively deep but didn't have star power (before Greivis busted out into a superstar), Petecard was always claiming that talent is measured by stars. Now that we have stars, it's measured by depth. You gotta hand Petecard, the one thing is has ALWAYS excelled at, is contradicting himself.
