Here’s the reason for Braxton Dupree‘s DNP tonight.
He missed a class on Monday.
The Terrapins got home around midnight after Sunday’s loss to Georgetown. And it would seem Dupree did what a lot of college students would do in that situation.
But with plenty of eager options in the frontcourt —- namely Dave Neal and Dino Gregory —- Dupree sat.
Sounds like this was a one-night deal. And while Dupree might not start —- and, given the way Neal played, probably won’t start —- on Sunday, expect to see him back in a Maryland rotation near you.
