"I appreciate the support and encouragement I've received from Coach Turgeon and the athletic department," Hill said. "But at this time it is in my best interest ti take a leave of absence form the MD bball program and focus my attention on some personal matters that nee to be dealt with immediately."

We will support him through this process, " said Maryland men's head coach Mark Turgeon. "We want him to focus his personal life. Basketball is secondary at this point. His primary focus need to be on his health and well-being."
