Here are notes on Terrell Stoglin, the incoming Maryland guard who played in last night’s Capital Classic: There’s a lot to like about Stoglin, who appears unselfish, sees the court well, has a sweet-looking lefty jump shot and — like fellow recruit Pe’Shon Howard — doesn’t lack for confidence. Stoglin finished with 11 points on 4-for-8 shooting — including three 3-pointers.
Baltimore never had a losing April from 1960-1969 and finished the ’60s with their best overall April record (91-62). The Orioles doubled their win total on Sunday with an 8-3 victory against Oakland that guaranteed they won’t match the worst April record in team history, the 1-22 mark posted by the 1988 team. The 2-11 Birds now need to record an unlikely 10 straight victories to close out the month with a winning record.
Here is some info on Haukur Palsson, the incoming Maryland swingman from Montverde (Fla.) Academy who played in last night’s Capital Classic: Palsson had three points and four rebounds in the game and said he hopes to help Maryland on the boards next season. Of the three future Terps in the game, Palsson was the toughest to evaluate. High school all-star games are all about creating shots and passes.
