COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The man with the best name in college basketball will keep the ACC Greivising for another a season.
The assumption is that the star and leader of the Terrapins would be a bench player in the NBA at best. Sources said he couldn't find a guarantee that he'd be drafted so he withdrew, allowing him to go back to school. Coach Gary Williams expects Vasquez to be a top 20 pick next year.
Colorful, passionate and outspoken, the Venezuelan point guard is one of the most popular players in Terps history.
He led the late-season run that carried Maryland over the bubble, into the NCAA tournament and past the first round.
Vasquez led the team with 17.5 points and 5 assists per game and also averaged 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals.
