The festivities for "Maryland Madness," the Maryland basketball version of midnight madness to kick off the college basketball season on Friday night, is coming together. Already, the alumni game was featuring four of the five starters from the Terps' 2002 NCAA championship team. Now, a couple other prominent former Terps will be involved.
According to a team press release, Steve Francis, Eric Hayes and Jerrod Mustaf are also expected to be playing in the game, which is scheduled to begin at 10:30 p.m. on Friday. Those two will join Juan Dixon, Steve Blake, Byron Mouton and Chris Wilcox.
There might be one more recent alum as well. Upon hearing the news, Greivis Vasquez expressed his desire to play in the game.
Vasquez, of course, was the 2009/10 ACC Player of the Year and currently suits up for the Memphis Grizzlies. The Terps retired his uniform last year.
