If you missed it earlier, the big news from Cal’s pre-Maryland presser was that Ryan Harrow and Julius Mays are questionable for tomorrow night’s game. But, Cal had plenty of other things to say. Here’s a brief recap:
— On playing against Mark Turgeon, whom he coached while an assistant at Kansas: “I’m not one of those guys who likes playing friends, and Mark Turgeon’s a guy I’ve known for years.”
— When asked about Jon Hood, Cal said he was happy with how he played against Transy; he passed up some shots but played within himself.
— Cal is happy that Dez Wells is eligible, calling him “one of those guys to set you over the top.” True to form, Cal said this is all about the players, so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt. “He will make Maryland legitimately now one of those teams. They needed that one guy and he can be that guy.”
— Echoing what he said on yesterday’s radio show, Cal said he has no idea what to expect on Friday due to the team’s youth.
— Cal was very thankful and appreciative of the Big Blue Nation’s fundraising efforts at the telethon last night. Additionally, he said that if he has time, he plans to tour some of the damage in New York.
