So Braxton Dupree is transferring. I would tell him not to let the door hit him in the ass on the way out, but that would require footwork. So instead, Braxton, as you exit, just try not to foul the door. OK? OK.
Braxton’s final stat averages with the Terps? 2.3 points. 2.3 rebounds. What symmetry. Hey, the guy just lost his confidence and never got it back. He was buried on the bench by season’s end and that wasn’t gonna change. Eventually, he seemed to stop caring, as evidenced by his somewhat infamous sideline cut-ups at the end of a Terps loss. The good news — beyond, you know, no more Braxton — is there’s now room for another player. It will be interesting to see what materializes there.
Now, only two questions remain. One: where does he rank on the list of all-time worst Terps big men, of which there are many? I’d rank him ahead (ie, worse than) Mike Mardesich and Travis Garrison, but just below Will Bowers for the worst all-time. Now that’s something you can hang your hat on. Question number two: where will he transfer to? Maybe UC Santa Cruz? He kinda looks like a Banana Slug. Or what about Mineral Area College? Eastern Idaho Tech? Wherever you land, best of luck, sir.
