ATLANTA —- So who is Wake Forest aiming to stop Thursday against Maryland?
Terrell Stoglin? More like Sean Mosley.
“We know Stoglin’s going to get his points,” coach Jeff Bzdelik said. “He does in their wins and losses. He’s a player who you just have to force him to take a lot of tough shots. We did that in game one; I think he was 6-for-18. Mosley is a guy who scores 15 points per game in their wins and shoots 58 percent from the three-point arc in their wins and is scoring only eight points per game in their losses.”
Bzdelik isn’t entirely right. Mosley averages 12.2 points in Maryland’s wins and 8.3 points in the Terrapins’ losses. He’s also shooting 44.7 percent from 3-point range in wins and 32.6 percent in Maryland’s setbacks.
So Bzdelik’s numbers aren’t right. But his overarching point probably is.
