MARYLAND RECRUITS RIDDLE

The University of Maryland has its eye on the Southern Conference Rookie of the Year Scott Riddle, and it’s not what you think. Riddle is a multi-sport star, and the Terps are desperate for an accurate 3-point shooter.

In back-to-back losses, Maryland has gone 2-22 from behind the arc. In both of those games the lone trey came with less than 30 seconds to play.

Coach Gary “Arrid XX Solid” Williams said, “We are desperate for offense so we will hold open tryouts on Friday. If you can shoot rock from long distance, get your ass down to Comcast.”

The lack of offense was the problem last night as the Terps lost the consolation game of the CBE Classic to Missouri (Tigers, 21,587 students, Columbia, MO). Leo Lyons had 23 points and 11 rebounds, and Missouri swarmed Maryland into numerous mistakes for an 84-70 win. The Tigers' pressure produced 12 Maryland turnovers in the first half, including two at the start of a 10-0 run that put Missouri up 39-29.

Oddly enough, Riddle could not be reached for comment.
