N.C. State fans chant "U.S.A." at Vasquez
Ah, collegiate sports. So wholesome, the way the students of America can chant patriotic slogans at opposing stars who happen to hail from foreign countries. Better than a "Deport Vasquez" sign, but in the same general spirit, I'd say.
Watch during the second free throw, when Vasquez grins at the chants. Here's from Luke DeCock's account in the News & Observer:
He may not be missed around the RBC Center, but he will miss playing here. "Definitely," Vasquez said, straight-faced. "It's a great building, those are great fans and it was a great game."
Easy for him to say: He's 7-0 against the Wolfpack in his career after Wednesday's 67-58 win. A few fans chanted "U-S-A" at the Venezuelan as he took a late free throw, then cheered when he missed. That was scant revenge for his gratuitous 3-pointer a year ago at the end of an easy win - his response to what Maryland coach Gary Williams described as "things said to Greivis that were not very nice."
(And no, I'm not absolving Maryland fans for any of their own distasteful behavior, though feel free to accuse me of that.)
(Also, the all-knowing Keith Cavanaugh from Terrapin Times says that Greivis is now a top-15 all-time Terp, with the chance to move up higher depending on how this season ends. Sounds like a post for Mister Irrelevant.)
