B. Maze, Be Amazed
Former Terps point guard commitment Bobby Maze has made quite an impression on Tennessee fans.
The Suitland native and Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College transfer has staked his claim on the Vols’ starting point guard job (see below), and recently offered his freestyle take on UT’s squad for the upcoming season on You Tube.
In the video, he also makes quick mention of his all-too-brief stint as a Maryland commitment.
This thing is not a game
Who am I to blame
Maryland never change
On the court, Maze has impressed the local media in Tennessee with his performances in the Rocky Top League. After watching Maze at a summer league game last week, The Mountain Press’ Jason Davis said he was ready to ‘pencil him in to this fall's starting lineup.’
Although he only scored 14 points, Maze delivered nine assists and showed a great ability to penetrate the lane and find the open man.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing about Maze was, in warm-ups he was taking mid-range jumpers and nailing them. Far too many modern players neglect the mid-range game in favor of jacking up ill-advised threes. Maze looked content to shoot the 15-footer, and he looked proficient at doing it. That's something UT needs.
