TSPL: High School heroes provide league's star power

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Terrell Stoglin made a brief pit stop this weekend in his hometown of Tucson to get some run. On the basketball floor.

The former Maryland Terrapin made an appearance Sunday at the Tucson Summer Pro League playing point guard for the Ace Hardware squad.

The Santa Rita product just completed his first season playing in Greece for Ilysiaskos where he averaged 20 points in their 18 games, including two 32-point games.

Stoglin indicated he will return to Europe if nothing develops stateside. He recently worked out for the Houston Rockets and had an interview with the Phoenix Suns.

Stoglin played two seasons at Maryland, where he was a teammate of Phoenix Suns #1 pick Alex Len, but was suspended after his sophomore year for violation of the school's code of student-athlete conduct.

Rather than sit out an entire season he opted to put his name in the pool for the 2012 NBA Draft. He did not get selected.

Stoglin then signed to play with the Toronto Raptors Summer League squad but that experience did not result in an invitation to an NBA training camp. Ironically he was in the same position that UA's Mark Lyons finds himself in this summer.

Pueblo's Michael Perez also played Sunday at the TSPL.

Perez will return to the floor this season at Nevada. He was ineligible for the 2012-13 college campaign after transferring from UTEP.

Perez averaged seven points and one assist for the Miners in his two seasons under Tim Floyd.

Indiana State's Brandon Burnett (Cienega) is also playing in the league again this summer. He saw limited minutes as a freshman for the Sycamores averaging two points and one rebound.
