Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon reinstated guard Pe'Shon Howard from a one-game suspension.
Howard returned to the team Sunday after missing all of last week and Saturday's victory over Duke for still undisclosed reasons.
"I just called him and talked to his dad and said I’m going to bring you back," Turgeon said. "While I was suspending him, I was going through all the actions with him. He’s done everything I’ve asked since then and he came back last night."
Howard is expected to be with Maryland (18-7, 6-6 ACC) when it visits Boston College (11-14, 3-9) on Tuesday. Howard is averaging 3.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 23 games for the Terrapins.
"I talked to the team about his mistakes," Turgeon said. "Hopefully, Pe’Shon learned from them and hopefully he learned from his mistakes. He paid his punishment. He got punished for what he did. He’ll be back. We need a confident, playing well Pe’Shon for us moving forward."
