So, in terms of on-court issues, what does Dino Gregory‘s absence tonight for “a violation of team rules” mean for Maryland’s starting lineup?

Well, freshman James Padgett will draw the start at the five, joining Greivis Vasquez, Eric Hayes, Sean Mosley and Landon Milbourne.


Logically, this would also bump up Jordan Williams to the first big man off the bench. With Steve Goins out with a knee injury the Terps are suddenly quite thin up front.

In short, Maryland has an interesting situation —- more than enough guards for the backcourt minutes, and maybe not enough forwards for all the frontcourt minutes.
