Maryland Vs. Duke: Pe'Shon Howard Injury Weakens Backcourt Depth

Maryland Terrapins guard Pe'Shon Howard had a rough start to his season, and sadly the year will end in an even rougher manner than it begin. Howard, who missed the first nine game of the Terrapins season with a broken foot, tore his ACL in practice Thursday and will miss the remainder of the year.

Via Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun, head coach Mark Turgeon had this to say about the loss of his point guard:

"We're heartbroken for Pe'Shon," said Turgeon in a written statement. "He's done everything we've asked of him this season and he was playing very well. Obviously it's been a tough year for him, but he's a great kid."

After returning from the broken foot, Howard was averaging 6.5 points per game and had amassed 52 assists, the most on the team. His ACL tear means Nick Faust and Terrell Stoglin will have to go back to sharing point guard duties.
