Because I was on the air at ESPN tonight , I missed the Maryland Basketball awards banquet. Testudo times reports of the sharing of the MVP award between Dave Neal and Greivis and they believe Greivis should have been the sole winner. There is no dispute that as Greivis went so did the Terps. Dave Neal provided an integral role in many of the victories but it was Greivis who was the straw that stirred the drink. In the major win of the season Greivis scored a triple double against the eventual NCAA Champs. Perhaps the proper title for Dave Neal should have been Unsung Hero, because night in and night out Dave surprised us all and was an inspiration to the team, but I can certainly live with the sharing of the MVP award.
When I was out in Kansas City for rounds one and two of the NCAA, all the talk was about 2 players the incomparable Blake Griffin and the irascible Greivis Vasquez. Greivis is a passionate, fiery, confident, and yes cocky basketball player. He is exciting to watch, a pleasure to coach (ask Gary) and will always bring success to whatever team he plays for. VIVA VASQUEZ!!!!
