Maryland coach Mark Turgeon tweets frustration with Big Ten all-freshman team
Turgeon has played freshmen all season, and made the case for them on Twitter
Maryland coach Mark Turgeon took to Twitter when he saw that none of his players were picked for the Big Ten All-Freshman team.
“If you have family, you have kids, you like to stick up for them,” Turgeon said, clarifying his comments in the video above. “I was sticking up for my guys. I thought we had a terrific year, I stated facts. I was proud of our guys .. disappointed for them, but hopefully it puts a chip on their shoulder.”
Turgeon took a nice route in his comments, and there’s no point in taking away from the players on the team that deserved the honors. But he does have a decent beef if you evaluate importance and production.
Here is the All-Big Ten freshman first team:
