Maryland to retire Greivis Vasquez's jersey Feb. 20

By Matt Bonesteel

In a move that was long rumored, Maryland announced today that it will honor Greivis Vasquez in a ceremony at Comcast Center on Feb. 20, when the Terrapins host North Carolina State.

Vasquez, now playing for the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA, is Maryland's second-leading scorer all-time with 2,171 career points. He's the only player in ACC history with 2,000 points, 700 assists and 600 rebounds in his career. Vasquez was named ACC player of the year for the 2009-10 season and won the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation's best point guard.

Vasquez will be the 16th Maryland player honored with a banner at Comcast Center. Terrapins Coach Gary Williams also has been honored with a banner above the court.
