Terps in turmoil: Maryland 5 in big trouble
By BOB McCROSKEY
What do you get when you com
bine a new, enthusiastic head coach,
an NCAA investigation, one of the
better front lines in the ACC and a
backcourt that is shaky at best?
Obviously, you have the Mary
land Terrapins and their problems
in a nutshell.
The biggest problem facing the
Terps this year, besides conference
opponents, is an NCAA investiga
tion that could bring to light alleged
violations by former head coach Bob
Wade. In an effort to clean their own
house, Maryland officials forced
Wade to resign and brought in for
mer Ohio State head coach Gary Wil
liams. The move was also an attempt
to appease the NCAA by acting "in
"We regret that it (the situation
with Wade) had to happen the way it
did," sophomore forward Jerrod
Mustaf said. "But we have to con
centrate on this year and being suc
cessful. "I don't think I'm the easiest coach
to play for," Williams said. "I'm tough
and I ask a lot of different things
from my players."
But the NCAA probe is still loom-
ing on Maryland's horizon, and the
initial findings don't look good for
the Terps, who stumbled in with a 9
20 record a year ago (1-13 in the
For now, Williams has told his
players to put the investigation in the
background and concentrate on play
ing basketball. His biggest concern
is getting to know his players and
coming up with a competitive start
Junior Teyon McCoy should start
at point guard in a backcourt that
lacks in depth. He started 34 games
during his freshman and sophomore
seasons before opting to red-shirt last
year to improve his grades.
"We have no real veterans," sen
ior center Tony Massenburg said. "We
need a point guard who can control
the game, and we are confident in
Sophomore Jesse Martin will
probably join McCoy in the backcourt
In limited action as a freshman, the
6-foot-4 shooting guard showed the
ability to hit the open jumper and be
a good backcourt rebounder.
That takes us to the frontcourt,
one of the better ones in the ACC.

ing last season.
Williams could develop into a force
to be reckoned with this season.He
proved his versatility by playing small
forward and both guard spots at some
point during 1988-89. The better the
competition, the better Williams
seems to play.
Perhaps no Terp player has more
riding on him than Mustaf. He chalked
up one of the best freshman perform
ances in ACC history last year, aver
aging 14.3 points and 7.8 rebounds
per game and finishing second only
to Virginia's Bryant Stith for ACC
