Greivis Vasquez Attempts To Get Drafted In 2010 NBA Draft

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's safe to say Greivis Vasquez is the most beloved Maryland player since their 2002 NCAA Championship team members. He played all four years at Maryland, getting better every season. Last year, he led a surprise Maryland team to the top of the ACC, doing so with bravado and confidence. He rightfully won ACC Player of the Year, completely outplaying Duke's Jon Scheyer in a key late-season win to secure the crown.

So in college, Vasquez was great. His NBA prospects, however, are a bit dimmer. If Vasquez is to be drafted, it'll likely be as a second-round pick, but because this year's draft class is so deep, it's also possible he gets passed over entirely. While he was one of the most productive players in the draft according to at least one metric, he also lacks elite athleticism and speed, which both matter more on the next level.

We'll chronicle Vasquez attempt to make it on the next level in this stream. As a Terps fan myself, here's hoping he finds an NBA home.
