An Up And Down Night For Vasquez
Unlike the "quiet" performances junior guard Greivis Vasquez said he had been turning in previously, his showing Tuesday night looked like a more familiar version of the bombastic shooter Maryland followers have become accustomed to seeing. He scored 18 points, some of which helped prolong Maryland's lead in the second half.
But Vasquez shot 7-for-20 from the field, and because very few of his teammates had any better luck getting their shots to fall, Maryland's lead never stabilized.
Gary Williams thought he recognized the guy in the No. 21 Terps jersey, too. Vasquez had shot below 30 percent from the field since ACC play began, and Williams was encouraged that his marquee player appeared to be competing with more energy than he had in recent outings.
Vasquez also tallied six assists, five rebounds and three turnovers against Boston College.
"I thought he moved better tonight," Williams said. "I think a lot of times, the shooter, especially one that has a little bit of a rep like Greivis does off of last year, you have to move. You have to get open. I thought he was a little stale, in terms of his movement, prior to tonight. But I thought he moved well. I thought he got some looks that, you know, he makes. You know, he missed a couple, but I think that was a better offensive night for Greivis in terms of his emotion and him going after it. I thought he did a pretty good job with that."
