Mark Turgeon has said he doesn't talk to his players about winning. That outcome, the Maryland coach says, is a byproduct of continually playing better basketball. "We talk about getting better, preparing and, if you play well, good things are going to happen," Turgeon said during his first Maryland season. Fair enough. But the paradox is that Turgeon is often roiling on the inside, and sometimes he simply can't hide it. And, of course, he wants to win as much as anybody else.

Mark Turgeon and Bino Ranson were two of many college coaches in East Baltimore last night to see No. 1 St. Frances beat No. 2 Mount St. Joseph. The Maryland men's basketball head coach and assistant were courtside during the Panthers' 58-57 win, presumably to scout two players with Terps offers: St. Frances small forward Dwayne Morgan and Mount St. Joseph combo guard Phil Booth . Morgan was St. Frances' third-leading scorer (13 points) behind UNC-Greensboro signee Tevon Saddler (19 points)

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. The whispers about Dion Wiley's talent began a year ago. And as last summer progressed, Wiley's name began popping up on top-100 lists everywhere.

If you were pitching Maryland basketball to recruits, what (and who?) would you emphasize most? That was the challenge facing coach Mark Turgeon, who is  giving his office a makeover that he hopes will appeal to recruits and other visitors. He wants displays that will imprint on the important guests. The basketball suite has plenty of wall space - - a veritable canvas for the coach. Here's what Turgeon chose to highlight: Maryland's basketball tradition and accomplishments, the school's membership in the “premier college basketball conference in the nation,” the Comcast Center and proximity to Washington and Baltimore, the ties to Under Armour and the coach's own lineage.

Is Maryland's 11 th starting lineup THE ONE? Has the team found a winning combination? Mark Turgeon said today he was pleased with the group that began the Wake Forest victory on Saturday. “I like our starting lineup right now. It's a little bit older, so I like that.” Turgeon celebrated his birthday yesterday. He's 48 going on 107. Like “dog years,” basketball- coaching years aren't quite equivalent to regular time. The profession exacts a toll. I kid, of course.

Freshman center Shaquille Cleare will get his second career start when the Terps take on Miami on Sunday night in Coral Gables, Fla. Maryland will employ Cleare in a big lineup with 7-footer Alex Len, coach Mark Turgeon said today. Len will play power forward with Cleare at center. "That's a big '4,' " Cleare said of Len. "It's going to be kind of scary. I think it's going to be a great lineup. " Regular starters Nick Faust and Dez Wells are also likely to open the game, and Turgeon said he's still deciding on his point guard.

As his team prepares for a much-needed home game Wednesday night after two bad road losses, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon says his players must pull out of their "funk" and focus on the big picture. In the big picture, Turgeon says, the Terps are 2-2 in the conference. They may not feel like a .500 team after losses of 20 points and 24 points, respectively, to Pittsburgh and Florida State. “Guys got to get themselves out of the funk,” Turgeon said Monday on the ACC's media conference call.

Maryland coach Mark Turgeon has been selected to coach one of the teams in the 2014 Reese's College All-Star game at this year's Final Four outside Dallas. Turgeon, whose 17-15 Terps were not selected in either the NCAA tournament or the National Invitation Tournament, will coach the East team, while Stanford's Johnny Dawkins will coach the West.

It was interesting to hear Mark Turgeon talk about his team's final sequence in Wednesday's 51-50 win over No. 14 North Carolina State. After the game, Turgeon talked about how the Terps didn't run the play he called coming out of any timeouts. “We ran a play that was supposed to isolate the middle. Dez [Wells] was taking it in because I trusted him,” Turgeon said. “Pe'Shon [Howard] was supposed to be a decoy on the other side of halfcourt. It was more of an isolation play that never developed.” Howard ended up getting the ball when Seth Allen picked up his dribble.  Taking a friendly poke at the reporter who had asked why Wells wasn't more involved on the play, Turgeon said, “We won the game, you know that?
