There’s only so much of interest about Maryland’s date with 4-4 South Carolina State on Saturday.

One thing that probably doesn’t mean anything but could be somewhat interesting is who starts for the Terrapins.


Coach Mark Turgeon gave Seth Allen, Shaquille Cleare and Jake Layman their first career starts in Saturday’s 100-68 defeat of Maryland-Eastern Shore and indicated he would tinker with another unusual lineup in the next game.

So, who will it be?

“I don’t want  to say because there’s a lot between now and 2 o’clock tomorrow,” Turgeon said Friday. “You’re dealing with 18-to-22-year-old kids. I know who I want to start. We’ll see if it happens that way.”

Considering Turgeon said he hoped to give everyone the chance to know what it was like to start, it seemed like a worthy follow-up if forward Charles Mitchell and guard Logan Aronhalt – the only members of Maryland’s rotation who have yet to start a game – would get a game-opening nod.

“You’d be safe to write that down in your article,” Turgeon said. “But things change.”
