Maryland makes change at QB in 2nd half vs. WVU


Maryland makes change at QB in 2nd half vs. WVU

After starting quarterback Caleb Rowe limped through the first half with two interceptions against West Virginia and threw two more in the third quarter, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall made a change at the position.

Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman, who was the team’s third-string quarterback coming out of training camp, entered the game to lead the Maryland offense late in the third quarter.

By that point, Maryland was trailing, 38-0. Rowe finished 10-of-27 for 67 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions.


Varying levels of West Virginia pressure appeared to severely rattle Rowe.

The frustration appeared palpable after certain incompletions, manifesting in back-and-forth chatter among teammates and arms thrown in the air by receivers in the first half.

After coming out of training camp as the third-stringer, Garman was elevated to the backup role once Rowe was given the starting job prior to the team’s Week 3 game against South Florida. Former starter Perry Hills then moved down the depth chart to third string.

Garman has experience against West Virginia, being that he was formerly in the Big 12 at Oklahoma State. Last season against the Mountaineers on Oct. 25, 2014, he completed 21-of-41 passes for 242 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 34-10 Cowboys loss to WVU.

Maryland loses two as Justin Jackson declares for NBA Draft, will sign with agent

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Maryland forward Justin Jackson will forgo his final two seasons of college eligibility to seek a career in the NBA.

Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon also says guard Dion Wiley will transfer before playing his senior season.


Jackson averaged 10.5 points as a freshman before missing most of the 2017-18 season with a shoulder injury.

Jackson says, "After talking with my family and weighing my options, it's my desire to turn my full attention to preparing for a career in professional basketball."

Wiley appeared in 83 career games, playing a backup role on three teams that advanced to the NCAA Tournament under Turgeon.

Maryland was 19-13 this season, including 8-10 in the Big Ten, and failed to reach the postseason.

Lefty Driesell to be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame per report

Long-time University of Maryland men’s basketball coach Charles Grice “Lefty” Driesell will finally be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame this year.

This is according to NBC Sports Washington contributor Jon Feinstein.

Driesell coached the Terrapins for 17 seasons between 1969-86. While guiding the program to eight NCAA Tournament appearances and an NIT Championship, Driesell transformed Maryland into a legitimate force in college basketball.

When hired by the Terps, Driesell famously announced that he wanted to turn Maryland into the “UCLA of the East.” After only four seasons he had made it to two ACC Championship Games and his first Elite Eight appearance. His success opened the door not only for the program but the school to compete at the highest levels of competition.


Maryland made it as high as the Elite Eight twice under the reign of Driesell. He was named ACC Coach of the Year twice and won one ACC Tournament Championship in 1984. At the time of his NIT Championship with the Terps in 1972, the NIT was held in a similar regard to the NCAA Tournament.

He is second on Maryland’s all-time wins list (348), behind Gary Williams’ 461. Driesell however, still holds the best win percentage of all Maryland coaches with 68.6 win percentage.

After Maryland, the former Duke basketball coached at James Madison for just short of a decade and ended his coaching days at Georgia State. Driesell also coached at Davidson before taking the Maryland job to combine for over 40 seasons at the head of a Division I basketball program.

The 86-year-old was inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame back in 2007. He also the namesake for the NCAA’s best defensive player of the year award, which was first awarded in 2010.

The official announcement from the Naismith Hall of Fame will be during the Final Four on Saturday, March 31.
