Vasquez: Terps need to be more exciting
Maryland's half-court offense is operating pretty smoothly right now. Following Sunday's win over Florida Atlantic, senior forward Landon Milbourne said the players are trusting in the team's flex offense more and, thus, are executing it better than they have at any previous point this season. The Terrapins are shooting 48.3 percent from the field and are dishing out 17.2 assists per game.
Senior guard Greivis Vasquez, for one, isn't all that concerned with how efficiently his team's sets out of the flex offense are running. There are more pressing matters on which to focus, he said.
"That’s our best play," Vasquez said. "We’ve got the curl, we’ve got so many different options. It’s hard for other teams to stop us. So yeah, our flex is pretty good. But I’m more concerned about running our break. I mean, I think we’ve got so many guards that we should score easy buckets like we did last year. Especially this year, we just have to rebound. And we don’t get that enough.
"Last year, we used to have so many break downs and just go back and Landon gets a dunk. We’ve got to be more exciting to watch. I’m concerned about that. We’re running our plays better than last year. We’re scoring points. We’re averaging like 80 points a game*. I just want to have fun. Like last year, Landon was dunking and Sean, every time we get a rebound we always score like within seven seconds or less. We need to get more of those. We have to become a quicker team in that aspect, and that will help us defensively a lot. That will get us a lot of confidence."
* Maryland is averaging 78.7 points per game.
