Latest: How Hurricane Joaquin could affect Maryland-Michigan

COLLEGE PARK -- According to a spokesman for the Maryland athletic department, "all is on schedule" and no discussions have yet been had in regards to moving the game time of or entirely cancelling Saturday's game between Maryland and Michigan over concerns about the projected path of Hurricane Joaquin.

The hurricane, which is currently moving through the Caribbean, could make landfall on the East Coast of the United States this weekend, though models are not yet definitive about its path.

The Big Ten Network announced on Tuesday that it had cancelled a scheduled live pregame show from outside of Byrd Stadium in College Park over concerns about the storm.

Here is the latest on the storm, via Weather.com:

The American GFS model forecast showed Joaquin making an alarming northwestward turn, slamming it right into Virginia and Maryland this weekend. Meanwhile, the European ECMWF model showed Joaquin staying well away from the U.S. East Coast, and eventually curving out into the North Atlantic well off the coasts of New England and Atlantic Canada.

It is simply too soon and the uncertainty is too high to determine any impacts from Joaquin itself for the U.S. East Coast at this time.

Kickoff between Maryland and Michigan is set for 8 p.m. on Saturday night. Stay tuned to CSNmidatlantic.com for updates as more information becomes available.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.
