Vasquez named one of six Cousy Award finalists

Maryland senior guard Greivis Vasquez was named one of six finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Friday. The Cousy Award is given annually to the nation's top point guard.

Joining Vasquez on the list of finalists is Kansas's Sherron Collins, Villanova's Scottie Reynolds, Duke's Jon Scheyer, Ohio State's Evan Turner and Kentucky's John Wall. The winner will be announced April 1 and the award will be presented April 5 at the Final Four in Indianapolis.

Vasquez is averaging 19.5 points, 6.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game this season. He and Scheyer are considered two of the top candidates to be named ACC player of the year.

Sorry I missed you guys at Bentley's. I walked around looking and asking but to no avail. After a while it just got too corwded so I high-tailed it to Cornerstone and managed to actually sit at a table. I was the one in Bentley's with the Bias Jersey milling around.

Since the Cousy award does not come out till 4/1, I am assumming it takes post season tourneys into account. If so, Grevis still has a chance because the Terps are still rising. I would think he has a better chance than Scheyer but not quite sure of the others because of how high their teams have been ranked this year; justifiably because of thier point guard play.

It will be hard for the judges not to vote for Wall because of his national noteriety. With Villanova's slide I think Reynolds is working his way out of the picture. ET just helped his team win the Big Ten and he came back from a very serious early season injury. Collins has got to be in the running as well because of Kansas's first place finish. Let's keep our finger's crossed.

The incorrect, but much bandied about, opinion that the ACC is having a down year will factor into the vote. Greivis should be honored to be this group of players. But he better win ACC POY, or those voters will have a lot of explaining to do!
