The Mark of a Leader

The Terps lost again tonight 81-66 to Wake Forest. Maryland's self-appointed on court leader, G John Gilchrist contributed thusly:

Maryland (9-4, 1-2) played poorly in its second-straight lopsided loss. The Terrapins were coming off a 36-point loss at No. 3 North Carolina, and started the game with leading scorer John Gilchrist on the bench for missing an academic assignment.

Gilchrist hardly played, sitting for almost the entire second half and finishing with two points on 1-of-2 shooting. Nik Caner-Medley led the Terrapins with 18 points.

Let's see...scandal ridden (check) to leadership role (check)...lack of production when the stakes are high (check). If the NBA does not have Gilchrist on its scouting list, the United Nations might. Sounds like he is just the kind of talent they are looking for.
