"Jeff Bzdelik ... [the] Colorado coach lost his prized recruit, athletic freshman guard Shannon Sharpe, to a season-ending knee injury during preseason workouts. Sharpe, a tenacious defender who was expected to split point-guard duties with Nate Tomlinson, was hurt last month, and needed a microfracture procedure that will sideline him for the season, and perhaps longer. ... Colorado ... will face Gonzaga in the first round of the Maui Invitational on Nov. 23 at the Lahaina Civic Center."

Dino Gregory to miss Maryland's first nine games, including important matchups with Villanova and Indiana, as well as the Maui Invitational.

Dino was the most improved player on the team, and he was already a pretty important part of the team toward the end of last year. Most signs pointed to him being the fifth starter and a major contributor on a team that needed guys who could play inside.

Instead, Maryland's already thin and weak frontcourt gets a man thinner and weaker. Steve Goins, James Padgett, and Jordan Williams should all see increased roles in his absence - yes, that is meant to scare you. Padgett, Williams, and Goins all seem pretty talented and competent, but they've to prove it against big time competition. Going into games with two freshmen big men and one who might as well be a freshman isn't comforting at all.
