Tyree Evans Not Necessarily Going Over So Well

You may have gotten the sense from time to time that while Maryland tolerates a fair amount of garbage, they are nonetheless very sensitive to their public image. You would be correct.

So while they tolerate thuggish, intimidating behavior from fans, they draw the line when J.J. Redick was cursed on national TV. The horror!

And so now, while initially they had little problem with Gary Williams' courtship of Tyree Evans, with a very negative reaction from the media building, they're slowing things down rather quickly.

Toss in concerns over Maryland's APR for basketball, and the concerns ratchet right on up.

Incidentally, they had previously recruited former Oklahoma guard Bobby Maze, who was dismissed by Jeff Capel because of his attitude and his practice habits. He'll now be attending Tennessee.
