Vetter on Vasquez: 'Absolutely Nothing Has Changed'

On Friday, SI.com reported that Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez would be staying in the NBA draft (second-to-last item) and, therefore, not returning to College Park for his senior season.

However, Stu Vetter, Vasquez's coach at Montrose Christian and someone Vasquez considers a father figure, denied the report in a telephone interview.

"Absolutely nothing has changed," Vetter said. "He's still visiting teams and collecting information and all that. He hasn't made a decision yet."

The deadline for underclassmen who have not yet hired an agent to withdraw their name from the NBA draft is 5 p.m. on June 15.

Did SI retract the report?

Only 3 1/2 hours left, and we still know nothing.

I hope Vasquez stays in the draft, he is a shoot first pg/sg hybrid who dominates the ball. While I like his competitiveness, his presence and the way he runs the offense inhibits the growth of the rest of the team. With Vasquez, we live and die by his hand, and history has shown that with him, the Terps limit is the round of 32.

In addition, Gary has demonstrated little ability to develop him, and really does not have adequate control of this player. Leaving Maryland is for the best.
