From The 'Former Prep Hoops Star Now Toiling In Anonymity' Department ...

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Terrell Stoglin was an absolute stud in high school. He led Santa Rita to the state championship EVERY season during his four-year varsity career for 2006-2010. He won a state title with the Eagles to the 2010 Class 4A-II title, and along the way gained enough notoriety to garner scholarship offers from numerous top-level Division basketball programs.

Stoglin ended up signing with Maryland, and as a freshman averaged 11.5 points per game. He nearly doubled that to 21.6 ppg last season, but not long after the Terrapins' year ended he was given a one-year suspension by the school for violating some school rules.

That prompted the quick-but-small — 6-foot-1, 185 pounds — Stoglin to declare himself eligible for the NBA Draft. Had he been picked and made a team he would have been just the fourth Tucsonan to reach the NBA.

Instead, Stoglin has ended up in Greece, where since signing with Athens Ilysiakos in late November has averaged 26.4 ppg. But, for the most part, he's been forgotten by the basketball world.

That is, until this popped up on his Twitter feed last night:


That was in reference to Maryland's putrid performance in Sunday night's 54-47 loss at Miami.

I don't know who all was bashing Stoglin beforehand, but after throwing his old teammates under the Twitter bus, I'd expect a lot more Stoglin-bashing to occur.

Glad to see former Tucson prep stars are finding ways to stay relevant ... good or bad.
