    Jul 14, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Despite winning 25 games last season, perimeter play was an issue for the Maryland Terrapins in 2012-13.

    Tim Miles

    The summer months for incoming freshmen can be a tense period for some, especially if they’ve yet to hear from the NCAA Eligibility Center about their status for the upcoming season.

    USA Basketball

    In the aftermath of its loss to Canada, the United States World University Games team knew that it could finish no better than ninth at the games. In some cases, not having a medal to play for can result in a team putting forth a less than satisfactory effort. Bob McKillop’s team had no such…

    2013 NBA Draft

    There was inherent risk when the Phoenix Suns drafted Maryland center Alex Len with the fifth pick in this year’s NBA Draft, but Len’s upside greatly outweighs any risk that his right ankle poses.

    Charles Carmouche, Negus Webster-Chan

    Negus Webster-Chan didn’t make enough of an impression at Mizzou. That’s why he transferred to Hawaii. In Hawaii’s active summer league, however, he’s made an immediate impression. According to the Court Sense blog, he’s caused a bit of a stir, in fact. Not a bad idea in the laid-back Hawaiian summer league. Chippy play in…

Being chosen to drive the Kentucky Speedway pace car? Got his name in the papers. Not getting to drive the pace car after all? Ditto. Losing in his hometown in the first…
