Terrell Stoglin, who led the ACC in scoring this season and did his best to lead Maryland to the postseason, will return for his junior season.
Stoglin tweeted the news Wednesday afternoon, writing, “Back for another season Terpnation!”
He confirmed his decision in a telephone interview afterward.
“It’s my final decision,” Stoglin said, asked if there was any chance of him changing his mind before the NBA deadline for early-entrants to declare their interest in the 2012 draft.
Stoglin said he reached his decision after talking with his father Tuesday night and with Coach Mark Turgeon on Wednesday morning. Neither tried to talk him into staying or leaving, Stoglin said, but the two conversations helped him sort out what he wanted to do.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Stoglin led the ACC in scoring this season (21.2 points per game) and carried Maryland’s offense throughout a rebuilding season under Turgeon, who inherited a thin roster and lost starting point guard Pe’Shon Howard to injury for nearly half the season.
