Gary-Greivis Passion Play Continues
So after American wins its NCAA tournament play-in game, Maryland follows suit. Pretty good win for Ohio State today, too. What a day for the colleges of Gary Williams.
With his players now having ensured that the headline for the '08-'09 season will be no worse than "Scrappy Maryland Team Proves Williams's Critics Wrong", this would be a good time to make a post about how dang much Greivis Vasquez loves his coach. Oh, right, I did that last night. But that was before that screaming, pounding man hug those two men enjoyed after tonight's win over Wake Forest. And, you know, I wasn't the only one to notice.
"Hey you laid quite a hug on your coach there at the end of the game," said the TV post-game questioner, which wasn't really a question.
"I love him, I love him," Greivis said. "You know, people always talk how come I praise him so much? It's because I think I'm just like him. You know, so competitive and I love the game and have so much passion for the game, and he does the same thing. So I guess we feel the same and we've got kind of like the same personality. So I'm just happy to be here and I'm happy to be one of his players."
