Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon met with Terrapins forward Charles Mitchell on Thursday and the sophomore will face no further punishment following an incident that took place on Tuesday against Virginia Tech, a team spokesman told

Mitchell is scheduled to practice with the team on Friday and play in the team’s regular-season finale against Virginia on Sunday at Comcast Center.

On Tuesday, Mitchell did not return to the floor with his Terrapin teammates when Maryland emerged from the tunnel for the second half after reportedly engaging in an argument with assistant coach Scott Spinelli.

“Im not going to get into details, but it was just something that just had to have some discipline involved,” head coach Mark Turgeon said after the game. “I asked him to go to the locker room.”

Mitchell returned to the bench along with special assistant Juan Dixon part of the way through the second half. He participated in the team huddle during timeouts and wore his warmup top while sitting at the end of the bench.

The original meeting between Turgeon and Mitchell to discuss the issue was scheduled for Wednesday, but the head coach was on the road recruiting. Thus, the meeting was pushed to Thursday.
