Kevin Willard thinks that nerves got to Julian Reese in the season opener. He was proud of how Reese responded in game 2.

Reese finished the 71-51 win over Western Carolina with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 1 assist. This kind of play from Reese is nothing new to Willard. Willard stated that he has seen this from Reese at practice in the presser after the win.

“This is the Julian I see everyday in practice,” said Willard. “You are seeing a sliver of how good he can be.”

Reese could be a big part of Willard’s plans for Maryland if he keeps this up. The Terps are 2-0 under Willard so far.

We’ll see if Reese can keep his string of solid performances going with Binghamton up next on the schedule for the Terps on Nov. 15. That game will tip off at 7 p.m. ET on BTN from the Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland.
