Locksley has little more to say about Wes Brown suspension

Maryland head coach Mike Locksley had little more to say about the suspension of running back Wes Brown when asked during his media availability on Tuesday in College Park. 

"I'll let the statement handle the Wes situation," he said, referring to the brief statement released by the program on Monday announcing the suspension.

"As far as my disappointment, obviously like anything else when you lose a player it's got to be the next man up mentality, so we're going to count on guys that have to step up and fill the void that we'll have with Wes not being a part of it."

Brown had been elevated to the starting running back spot prior to the team's game against Michigan State as senior Brandon Ross struggled with ball security issues. In his absence, Ross moves back to being a starter and freshman Ty Johnson becomes his backup.

Brown was suspended for the 2013 season after an arrest and student-athlete code of conduct violation took place in the summer prior to the season. He returned to the team in 2014. 

Maryland faces Indiana at home on Saturday, the team's final home game of the season.

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.
