Topic - Shaquille Cleare
Former Maryland center Shaquille Cleare has signed to play the rest of his college basketball for Texas.
Former Maryland big man Shaquille Cleare will transfer closer to where he played high school basketball in the Lone Star State. Details here.
Shaquille Cleare had scored two points total in the past seven games. He went back to basics and had six against Virginia Tech. More here.
"This year people have been pressuring me about filling in for Alex, but I'm really not that pressured," Cleare said. "I'm just going to come in this year and do what I got to do: rebound, run the floor, jump shots, screens -- do anything to get the win at the end of the game."
Shaquille Cleare might not have arrived at Maryland as a perfectly polished player.
Mark Turgeon's thoughts drifted to Shaquille Cleare specifically and his team's depth in general as he navigated his way home from Verizon Center after Sunday's defeat of George Mason.
Maryland center Shaquille Cleare checked into an exhibition game this month. Within three minutes, the burly freshman's first shot, and a dunk attempt at that, bounced astray.
Shaquille Cleare tucked his 6-foot-9, 270 pound frame into a folding chair on the Comcast Center court Tuesday afternoon during Maryland's basketball media day.
And then there were two. Mark Turgeon replaced Gary Williams as Maryland's men's basketball coach last May. Exactly one year later, only two players from the old regime remain at College Park. So let's hear it for the sole survivors, rising senior James Padgett and rising junior Pe'Shon Howard.
"I really think we're growing up as a team," sophomore center Shaquille Cleare said. "We're showing everyone that we can play with poise and we can really defend if we put our minds to it."
When asked how he lost five pounds in four days, Cleare said it was, "Eating right, extra cardios after all the workouts, hit the stairs, hit the bikes -- nutrition is important. I know my team is going to need me this year so I'm going to have to be in tip-top shape."
