Turgeon Eyeing 6’9 Junior Martin Geben from St Maria Goretti High in Maryland

from Dan Painter in terrapintimes.com

First and foremost, the young man KNOWS how to play. He can play facing the basket or with his back to the basket. A trait which hasn’t been seen a ton of lately is passing the ball out of the post, and Geben does that well, too. We like his hands, he has good touch on his jumper and he’s an excellent rebounder. 

The rugged Lithuanian totaled 12 points, 22 rebounds and five blocks in the three games TT witnessed. He more than held his own, though he struggled a bit with the size of the Indy Spiece team.

So, the question must be asked: If you’re Maryland, do you offer a scholarship? Well, we should find out that answer shortly, since Terps coach Mark Turgeon was front and center at each one of his games, as was Notre Dame coach Mike Brey. 

From a skill standpoint, you have to do it. The bottom line is that the young man is talented, and while he’s not a greyhound or high flyer, he’s athletic enough. Plus he may be still growing, and he’s put on about 35 pounds in the past year and a half, which shows us a work ethic.

    More so interested in who they actually sign, rather than who they like.
    It becomes superfluous.
