Maryland freshmen Fernando and Morsell bring new dimension to Terps men’s basketball – Baltimore Sun

As a freshman three years ago, Michal Cekovsky barely spoke any English and hardly seemed ready to assume a starting role on the Maryland men’s basketball team.

Fellow freshman Jared Nickens certainly knew the language, but aside from knocking down some clutch 3-pointers, you’d barely notice he was there.

Now seniors, Cekovsky and Nickens are among the most welcoming players on coach Mark Turgeon’s 2017-18 team. Then again, it doesn’t take much to make two of this year’s freshmen feel as if they belong.

Fernando concedes that missing time with the injury “has been tough. I hate being on the sidelines.” But he’s hopeful of making his debut next week.
