COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) An ankle injury slowed Bruno Fernando late in the preseason. It certainly isn't causing any problems for the Maryland freshman now.
Fernando scored a career-high 18 points and added six rebounds and three blocks as the Terrapins cruised to a 76-45 victory over Jackson State on Monday night.
"For him to be doing what he's doing is pretty amazing," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "He's showing great patience and playing with great confidence on the low block, and defensively he's been off the charts."
