Terps point guard Howard out with foot injury

Oct 27, 2011 - 5:33 PM College Park, MD (Sports Network) - Maryland point guard Pe'Shon Howard could miss up to 10-12 weeks with a broken bone in his left foot, first-year head coach Mark Turgeon said Thursday.

Howard, a sophomore, averaged 5.4 points and 3.2 assists in 33 games -- eight starts -- last season for the Terrapins.

"I feel bad for Pe'Shon," said Turgeon. "He worked so hard and had a great summer and early fall. He's been practicing and playing well for us. Hopefully, we'll get a lot better by the time Pe'Shon joins the team later this year."

While Howard is out, sophomore guard Terrell Stoglin is likely to carry the backcourt burden for the Terps. He is the team's top returning scorer and assist leader, having averaged 11.4 points and 3.3 assists last season.
