Boom is a great example of how ridiculous expectations are on our current young players. He averaged 1 point as a freshman, 6 points as a JUCO soph, 5.8 as a Terp junior (where he looked completely lost much of the time) and then had a strong senior season with 11.5 and 6.5.
Our current freshmen and sophs are way ahead of his curve.
Needs Midget Boom to be complete.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
How sick was 2006-07? Boom, DJ, The General, Mike Jones, Gist, EI, Skill + Power = Will Bowers.
I mean, shit, we were robbed of a FF appearance for sure.
Loved that guy.
One more for good measure...
That pic looks like a scene from Oz
I like how Boom used to slow down a little when defending the fast break, so the guy on offense would start thinking about dunking before Boom sped up and destroyed his soul.
....and Boom is still in Europe making $$$ playing professional ball.
This. It's how I'll always remember him. He had great timing.
The most amazing thing he ever did was grow from 5'9 to 6'7 from his time at Juco to arriving at MD.
that's clearly a foul
he was strong and no one pushed him around

I believe Viper had specifically figured out he was 5'3.
His Fro was magnificent. Thank god he ditched the cornrows.
Balls to the wall
yep. He had at least ten 3 on 1 stops that year. He was back there all by himself so often. And he just dominated it.
I remember when Jimmy Dykes just stopped calling him by his actual name and called him "Fear the Fro" for an entire game. That was awesome.
