From the Raleigh News Observer of all places. Apparently, he is five points away from becoming the only ACC player with 2000 points, 700 assists, and 600 rebounds. On a night where he (along with JWill) was the team, he remarked "I think my teammates carried me today."
Seriously, if you don't love this guy, I question your Terps fanhood.
More talk on the growing legacy of Greivis Vasquez. It's going to be a sad day when he leaves College Park.
I still believe the Terps are the second best team in the ACC, but based on the loss to Wake, and VT being 21-4, fourth isn't completely outrageous.
Via Terrapins Insider:
"At this point in his career he's on a fine line between being good and not being so good, because he's not a great athlete yet," Gary Williams said. "I think there's a great athlete there if he works hard this spring and summer in the weight room, just like Lonny Baxter. He's the best reference I can use. ... Lonny became a much better athlete. Chris Wilcox became a much better athlete after their freshman year. What they do is they get a look at what they have to work on, not just hear it from a coach but see it for themselves and then get it done if they're so inclined, and hopefully Jordan will go that way."
You never know but he seems like a guy who's going to put in the work.
A bowl game certainly isn't out of the question but I'm not getting my hopes up until I see Jamarr and the new O-line.
Dave Cottle might be fighting for his lacrosse life this year. Then again, not a lot is expected from the national media, either; might fly under the radar. - Ben B.
Someone got this picture on Deadspin of the Comcast description of last night's MD-NC State game. According to Comcast, we all apparently missed Gary becoming the all-time win's leader in college basketball, as he got his 1,000 victory against NC State on Jan 23rd and last night was his 1,005th. Take that Coach K/Dean Smith/Bob Knight/Pat Summit! - DT
Why should Maryland fans care? Because Duke has NEVER offered a JuCo kid in the past. And because Gary and his staff have done pretty well getting players from JuCos in the past (Steve Francis, Jamar Smith, Boom) and if Coach K makes a regular habit of this, it probably isn't good for us. Definitely something to watch going forward, to see if Duke continues this trend into the future. - DT
