Maryland guard Terrell Stoglin came off the bench in Wednesday’s 70-64 defeat of Wake Forest for an apparent disciplinary issue.
Stoglin still led the Terrapins in both points (20) and minutes (34). He first entered with 18:05 to play in the first half.
Coach Mark Turgeon declined to specify why Stoglin came off the bench for the second time this season. He also was a reserve for Maryland’s season opener against UNC WIlmington.
“That’s between me and Terrell,” Turgeon said. “I’m trying to make Terrell a man, and his parents are on board with it, and there are responsibilities outside of basketball that you have to do. We’ll see if it helps him. Nothing major. I just need the kid to grow up.”
Stoglin shot 6-for-18 from the floor while rolling up his 11th 20-point night of the season.
“I heard I wasn’t going to start in practice this week, and I didn’t really get mad over it,” Stoglin said. “I knew when I had to come off the bench, I had to help the team win. I did that tonight and we won.”
