vasquez at the one is like watching dixon handle the ball. SCARY. Gary should make him the two, his natural position because hayes sets the offense better is more settling and doesn't shoot. Vasquez as the point guard still shoots more than most anyone on the team with a bad percentage to boot.

Vasquez is averaging nearly 8 assists per game. I don't know what's so scary about that. He has been nearly flawless in his last two games. As I've said all along, he's the best player on the team.

Hey John AOL! You got your own article! Telling Vasquez to go back to Venezuela man, that's you the article is talking about. You must be a very proud bigot. You might as well be with the dookies tomorrow night, because you're no Terp fan. You are very conspicuous by your absence on this thread. Where is all of your racist ranting against Vasquez now?

aw jeepers, what were you doing when you were a sophomore point guard on a young team with only one player with real experience (gist)? come on. you're a terp fan. remember all the criticism of blake and dixon during their sophomore years? of course you don't. imagine if others shared such a positive outlook.

Whatever problems Vasquez has---and he has plenty---I'd say they're the RIGHT problems for a Gary Williams coached team.

He's always up-tempo, sometimes to a fault. Same with his aggressiveness and its occasional overconfidence. Well I say it's been better to calm him down than it would have been to charge up a skilled but laconic player. And haven't we had plenty of that since the national championship?

Placing Vasquez at the one spot was brilliant. It's forced him to calm down, and it's brought the team's tempo up. And look at the quality of the assists, not just the number. We're FINALLY feeding the low post on a consistent basis, and looking good doing it! Hell this is the first time in years I haven't held my breath watching Maryland enter into it's half-court set.

I agree Vasquez is still capable of turning the ball over a little too readily. I wish he didn't feel like he had to take so many threes. But I'll take that in exchange for his intensity, his athleticism, and his leadership.

Duck Fuke!

Vasquez is typical Fairyland trash, a punk a*s thug bit*ch. He should go back to what ever third world cess pool he came from. You Fairyland idiots should love him, he's just like you all. No brains all mouth.

Muck Fairyland

Duke owns you, lol...
