PressBox looks back at what Fran Fraschilla, Diamond Stone, Steve Johnson and others had to say on
Glenn Clark Radio
the past month.
"… It really does become Melo Trimble's team a year from now with some good complementary pieces around him like Anthony Cowan [Jr.], who I love. I think he's [former Kentucky standout guard] Tyler Ulis, myself. You can play [Trimble] off the ball some, because Anthony Cowan is a terrific young point guard."
- ESPN analyst/former St. John's head coach Fran Fraschilla May 16 on the Maryland men's basketball team's future.
"Well, [rising junior guard] Dion Wiley, he was hurt. I think Dion Wiley is going to have a huge impact on college basketball next year. … [Rising junior guard/forward] Jared Nickens would be able to play more. [Rising senior forward] Damonte Dodd will be able to play more, and [rising junior forward Michal Cekovsky], he's our big blocker, he'll play more. So they have great pieces in line, and I feel like they should be OK."
- Former Terps center Diamond Stone May 17 on the talent returning to College Park, Md., next season.
"Coach Turgeon, you know, he's great with development. That's one of the things that he specializes with. With some of the younger guys coming in, even though they are young, these are guys who are ranked in the country -- four or five stars. They may be young, but they're very talented. Coach Turgeon, he's going to get us right for the season and work this thing out. He's been very successful with grad transfers and building teams, and it shouldn't be an issue."
- Incoming Maryland forward/Duquesne transfer L.G. Gill May 10 on how a Terps team with four new starters will gel together next year.
"You knew you had it in him from the stuff he had. You'd watch his bullpens, and even times in games, his stuff was unbelievable. Once he just kind of put it all together, something just clicked for him. Obviously, it's showing now. He was one of those guys where you'd watch him, and you'd just be like, ‘How am I supposed to pitch after watching that?' His stuff was so good."
- Seattle Mariners right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson May 17 on the success former Orioles teammate Jake Arrieta has had with the Chicago Cubs.
