There has been an insistence that Dino Gregory contributes more --- much more, even --- than his stats suggest to the Maryland basketball team.
Still, numbers are useful, so it stood out when Gregory had one point and one rebound in 27 minutes in Saturday's rout of Boston College.
No one questions Gregory's energy level. Few doubt he's going to be a more useful piece on defense than offense.
But quantifiable production would be helpful, too.
"Dino's got to get more stats," coach Gary Williams said. "He was good defensively, really worked hard, but we need rebounds and points from the inside positions. So hopefully that will happen."
Rebounding is probably the most eye-opening facet of Gregory's game. He's averaging 6.9 rebounds per 40 minutes this season. In ACC play, it's 6.0 rebounds.
Those totals are low for a post player, regardless of his skillset. Clearly, it's something that's on Williams' mind, and perhaps that might be the nudge that could lead to a stat line filled with crooked --- rather than straight and round --- numbers for the junior.
