Greivis Vasquez has been beloved in College Park seemingly since his first games in a Maryland basketball uniform. He’ll be back in town for the Terps’ game Sunday against Michigan State.

Maryland will be hosting the Greivis Vasquez Foundation notebook drive before its meeting with the No. 6 Spartans. The Terps are encouraging fans to donate unused notebooks, paper, pencils, pens and other school supplies in receptacles outside Xfinity Center gates A-E.

Vasquez started his foundation in 2010, and he’s served the community both in College Park and his native Venezuela. He’ll receive a well-deserved ovation at some point during Sunday’s game, which is Maryland’s best chance to earn a signature win for the rest of the season.

Let’s just hope Korie Lucious doesn’t travel with the Spartans.

Our latest podcast covers his hiring, as well as the varying successes of the men’s and women’s basketball teams (and of course, the upcoming Red Panda halftime show).

The women’s team has its first road game in nearly three weeks tonight as the No. 14 Terps visit Northwestern.

Maryland gymnastics, meanwhile, will be at home against Iowa.

The owner of a scouting company that works with NFL organizations says D.J. Moore is emerging as a “late first round option for a lot of teams.”

And late last night, Noah Boykin has officially decommitted from Maryland football. It’s not a surprise, but it does put the Terps in a tougher spot.
