Vasquez Update, Plus a Schedule Tidbit
Maryland point guard Greivis Vasquez appears close to a decision on his future plans.
At 10:55 a.m. today, Comcast SportsNet sent out an e-mail saying that Vasquez would announce his plans for next season during an interview tomorrow evening with Chick Hernandez on the network's "SportsNite" program. But an hour later, Comcast SportsNet sent out another e-mail saying the interview had been canceled, and that the network would have information on Vasquez's future on tonight's 6:30 p.m. "SportsNite."
On March 11, Vasquez told The Post's Eric Prisbell that he planned to declare for the NBA draft and compete in pre-draft camps before he decides whether to return for his senior season.
"Just to see where I am at, just to see who is going to be my competition," Vasquez said at the time. "It will get me better, so if I come back I know what I will have to work on."
This past season, Vasquez was named to the all-ACC second team for the second straight year. He led the Terrapins in scoring (17.5 points per game), rebounding (5.4 per game) and assists (5 per game), becoming the first Maryland player to lead the team in all three categories. One NBA draft Web site has him going late in the second round.
In other Terrapins news, ESPN announced today that Maryland will travel to Indiana on Tuesday, Dec. 1, as part of the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Hoosiers, who are in the midst of a massive rebuilding process under Coach Tom Crean, finished 6-25 last season. Five of Indiana's top six scorers last season were freshmen.
The Terrapins defeated the Hoosiers in the 2002 national title game.
