Turgeon isn't Sean Miller, and a few fans will be unable to look past that to see that he's a strong coach in his own right. He doesn't check quite as many boxes as Miller does - he lacks geographical ties, for instance, and doesn't have stellar recruiting results - but his coaching ability is very highly-regarded and it's tough to argue with his results, which are stellar.
Eight months later, Rubin is in the starting lineup for the Eagles. The freshman guard is averaging 7.6 points per game and has hit 15-of-32 3-point attempts (46.9 percent), ranking third in the ACC.
Sunday afternoon at Comcast Center, when Boston College (7-2) faces Maryland (7-3) in both teams' ACC opener, Rubin will play 12 miles from his home in Chevy Chase.
