Pe'Shon Howard Injury Update: Maryland Guard To Return To Action Friday, Mark Turgeon Says

Maryland Terrapins point guard Pe'Shon Howard will make his season debut Friday against the Radford Highlanders, coach Mark Turgeon said, according to Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com. The 6-foot-3 sophomore has missed the entire season with a broken foot suffered in preseason workouts, forcing Terrell Stoglin, a natural shooting guard, to log heavy minutes at the point.

The initial recovery estimates of 10-12 weeks projected Howard to return sometime in January, so the Oak Hill Academy product is well ahead of schedule. Still, Turgeon has previously mentioned the Radford contest as a target for Howard's return.

As a freshman, Howard averaged 5.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists on 42.3 percent shooting. His career-high in scoring stands at 14 points, set against the Charleston Cougars and Boston College Eagles.

Behind Stoglin's ACC-leading 22.2 points per game, the Terrapins' record stands at 6-3. Their conference schedule begins Jan. 8 against the NC State Wolfpack.
