Former Albany shooting guard Logan Aronhalt said Sunday that he planned to transfer to Maryland for his final year of eligibility. On Tuesday, Terps coach Mark Turgeon made it official. "We are thrilled to add Logan to our basketball family,” Turgeon said in a news release. “Logan's values are closely aligned with the expectations we have in our program.

With the season starting a month from Tuesday, there's still plenty of time for Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon to settle on a starting lineup. Not that Turgeon hasn't been thinking about who will take the court at Xfinity Center for the opening tip against Wagner on Nov. 14. At a breakfast with boosters in Baltimore on Monday, Turgeon made one interesting pronouncement. “Damonte Dodd's maybe one of our most improved players,” Turgeon said of the 6-foot-11 sophomore from the Eastern Shore.

Despite facing what will likely be a limited scholarship situation for the 2013 recruiting class, the Maryland basketball staff continues to evaluate a wide range of junior prospects. The latest name to add to the list: Stanford Robinson of Paul VI (Va.). Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard, received a visit this week from Terps coach Mark Turgeon, who watched him practice on Monday. Last week assistant Dalonte Hill had attended one of Robinson's games. “They haven't offered yet but the head coach was out here," Robinson said.

Baltimore hasn’t hosted a Maryland basketball game since November 1999. But new men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon, who has already started to beef up his recruiting presence in Baltimore by meeting with city officials, is interested in bringing the Terps back to Baltimore if the university can swing it financially. Maryland plays in Washington every year in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center, but Turgeon recently said that he hopes to play annually in both Baltimore and Washington or alternate years if that isn’t feasible.

ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep said today that Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his staff had to "work really hard" in the past two weeks to secure a commitment from Suitland guard Roddy Peters, who announced Tuesday that he was coming to College Park next season. Telep called the commitment from Peters "significant" in the fact that it shows the Terps will be "a local option" for top recruits, many of whom went elsewhere during the last few years of Gary Williams' 22-year career at his alma mater.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon impressed many people -- this sports blogger included -- during Wednesday's introductory press conference. But he made a strong impression on Lefty Driesell, who coached Maryland from 1969 to 1986, long before Turgeon was picked to replace Gary Williams. Driesell was the coach at Georgia State when Turgeon coached at conference rival Jacksonville State from 1998 to 2000. Even though Driesell mean-mugged Turgeon before games (as Turgeon pointed out Wednesday)

Before Mark Turgeon became a blip on Maryland’s radar during its frantic four-day coaching search, I admittedly knew way more about former NHL center Pierre Turgeon than I did about the former Texas A&M coach who was introduced as Maryland’s men’s basketball coach on Wednesday afternoon. I might be in rare company around here when it comes to my appreciation for the Turgeon who scored 515 goals in his long NHL career, but I know I was in the majority when I said “Who?” after news broke that the Terps had hired the Turgeon who steered Texas A&M to four straight NCAA tournament berths.

His team might not be in midseason form, or even early season form, but Maryland coach Mark Turgeon seems to hitting stride when assessing the Terps with his typical honesty. The first question in Thursday's news conference was about his team's starting lineup in Friday's exhibition game against Indiana (Pa.). "To be quite frank, I'm not sure I could start five guys, I'm not sure we have five guys practicing well enough to start," Turgeon said. "Don't want to go 'Hoosiers' on you, play four, play three.

COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon's two distinct memories of Len Bias have lasted three decades. The first occurred when Turgeon was a sophomore point guard at Kansas, sharing the same court at the Greak Alaskan Shootout with a junior rising star from Maryland. "Dunked on him," the Terps coach joked this week. In reality, Turgeon recalled how the muscular, 6-foot-8 power forward scraped his head on the bottom of the backboard after going in for a dunk. "That was the first time I had seen that," Turgeon said.

COLLEGE PARK - As a disappointing season gave way to a tumultuous offseason earlier this year, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon waited anxiously for the start of preseason practice. With an overhauled roster and a new offense, the Terps are scheduled to begin practice Friday as they get ready for their first season in the Big Ten Conference. Maryland, which finished 17-15 in its Atlantic Coast Conference farewell and failed for the fourth straight year to make the NCAA tournament, opens the 2014-15 season Nov. 14 against Wagner.

Maryland freshman Dion Wiley's summer began the day he reported to school in early June for classes, official team workouts and pickup games. When his new Terps teammates went home for a couple of weeks in mid-August, Wiley's basketball education continued in Europe. In what was the first trip out of the country for the 18-year-old from Prince George's County, Wiley was part of a regional all-star team of college players that spent more than a week in England, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

Both Logan Aronhalt and John Auslander began their college basketball careers at other schools before coming to Maryland. But they will start their coaching careers with the Terps. Both were officially added to Mark Turgeon's coaching staff Thursday as graduate assistants. Aronhalt played the 2012-13 season at Maryland as a graduate student after transferring from Albany. Auslander played three seasons in College Park after a year at Division III Greensboro College. The two former Terps join Steve Asher, who is in his second year as a graduate assistant.

The morning after Maryland's second lowest-scoring game in his two years in College Park, Mark Turgeon was uncharacteristically upbeat about his team. Despite a two-game losing streak that followed a 13-1 start, Turgeon said that he was pleased with his team's effort in Sunday's 54-47 loss to Miami. “I thought we played hard last night - really hard,” Turgeon said on Monday's ACC coaches' teleconference. “We never quit. We rebounded pretty well. I thought we competed on the road against a good team, [but]

I was curious what Maryland coach Mark Turgeon was going to say with a day to reflect on Sunday's 90-83 loss to Oregon State at Comcast Center. Since Turgeon is not scheduled to talk with the media until Tuesday morning, I tuned in his weekly radio show to listen. Here were some of his observations: On his team's 1-2 start "It's not the way we wanted to start the season obviously, but we played a really good UConn team and came up one point short and last night we really didn't play well.

In the midst of the mass exodus that saw five players with remaining eligibility leave Maryland this past spring, Mark Turgeon took a high-profile matchup Dec. 8 against Villanova in the Jimmy V Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden off the 2014-15 schedule. At the time, Turgeon cited a “scheduling conflict” as the reason. It was more the uncertainty of what kind of team the Terps were going to put on the court after a 17-15 season, the most disappointing year in the short Turgeon Era and one of the most underachieving by Maryland in memory.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
