Stovall and Parker are planning to leave school anyway with Stovall and as Michael alluded to entering the NBA draft. After averaging 21 points per game. During his sophomore year. Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson released this statement on the matter quote. Being a university of -- student athlete carries a tremendous honor and responsibility. As much as we appreciate the effort these two young man gave to the program this season. They aren't able to live up to that responsibility. We're disappointed but hope they use this as a learning experience. For bestselling author John Feinstein in this situation isn't all bad. I'm sure Mark Turgeon isn't happy to have reports. Coming out. That two of his players -- -- also one and Michael Parker tested positive for drugs and that's why they're basically being forced to leave the program. Even though technically they're just suspended for a year. On the other hand. I don't think mark is broken hearted that he won't have those players specifically stolen. To deal with next -- still -- a great scorer he won a bunch of games from Maryland last season. But he was also a headache his relationship with -- with turgeon was very up and down. And now that headaches gone -- can focus on his younger players he doesn't have to worry about his relationship was stolen and how he's going to fit in.
