Five of the inductees graduated in 2009 or 2010, including basketball legends Vasquez and Toliver. Vasquez is second on the all-time points list at Maryland and second on the all-time assists leaderboard. In 2010, he was awarded the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s top point guard, was an All-American and was also the ACC Player of the Year. Vasquez was a first-round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
Toliver won a national championship in 2006, is a two-time All-American, three-time All-ACC selection and was named ACC Player of the Year in 2009. She played 14 seasons in the WNBA before transitioning to coaching, where she currently holds a spot on the Dallas Mavericks coaching staff as one of the first female coaches in the NBA.
Davis’ Maryland football career featured a First-Team All-American appearance in 2005 to go along with First-Team All-ACC the same year. Davis led the team in receptions and receiving yards in back-to-back seasons in 2004 and 2005. He was drafted sixth overall in 2006 and had an illustrious NFL career, including a super bowl ring and an All-Pro selection.
The induction ceremony will take place on Oct. 7 on Maryland’s campus.
