Junior college point guard Bobby Maze was selected as a NJCAA 1st team All-Americans for his season at Hutchinson Community College this past year. Maze scored over 20 points a game and amassed 218 assists this season which shooting over 50% from the floor and 72% from the free throw line. He originally signed with Oklahoma and played there for a season until having a falling out with head coach Jeff Capel. Maze will hopefully give Maryland more speed in the backcourt and provide better on the ball defense.
I think Maze will provide some gritty play that was sometimes lacking this past season. What does being awarded 1st team All-American by the NJCAA mean? A few years ago Tyrone Brazelton was also awarded 1st team honors by the NJCAA. You may recall the name because Brazelton lead Western Kentucky to the Sweet Sixteen this year and scored 79 points in three tournament games for a 26.3 average. I think Maze will make more of an impact than recent Juco players like Parrish Brown and Sterling Ledbetter.

that dissimilar to online sports betting.You know your team, and you know the opponent. But above all, make
