Bad news came by way of Terps head coach Mark Turgeon this morning as he announced that guard Pe'Shon Howard will be sidelined up to 10 to 12 weeks with a broken right foot.
I feel bad for PeShon, said Turgeon. He worked so hard and had a great summer and early fall. Hes been practicing and playing well for us. Hopefully, well get a lot better by the time PeShon joins the team later this year.
As a freshman, Howard won the starting role at point guard, playing in all 33 of Maryland's games in the 2010-11 season. The 6-foot-3 guard was expected to start for the Terps at the same position once again this season.
The loss of Howard will make things even more difficult for Maryland's already thin roster as they open their season November 13 against UNC Wilmington before traveling to San Juan for the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
