Jay Bilas Picks Terps to Finish 3rd in ACC Hoops–Highlights from ESPN Blogs

3. Maryland: The Terps had a very good season, but will be better with some bulk and talent inside. Greivis Vasquez is one of the best guards in the country, but his emotional play seems to get more press than his skills. Vasquez is a complete player whom I believe is underrated. Add James Padgett and Jordan Williams to returnees Dino Gregory and Jerome Burney, and Maryland is not playing shorthanded in the paint this year. And no team will outwork this bunch. The Terps should be back to Garyland’s expected standards this season.

Rated one of the beat games to watch.

6. Maryland vs. Villanova, Dec. 6 (Washington D.C.): The highlight matchup of the BB&T Classic will be Greivis Vasquez versus Scottie Reynolds at the point. But both teams will want to push the ball and get after each other defensively. The Terps are a trendy pick for a top-four ACC finish, while the Wildcats should be the Big East favorite.

KEY PLAYER FOR MARYLAND

9. Sean Mosley, So., Maryland: The Terps desperately need another scorer to emerge to offset all the attention teams pay to Greivis Vasquez. Mosley had a modest freshman season (5.3 ppg, 23.8 percent on 3s), but if he can turn it up a notch, the Terps have a real shot to contend in the ACC.

    what difference does it make where someone picks a team in pre season. all that matters is where they finish at the end of the year. in regards to vitale..i can’t stand him listening to him on a basketball telecast. he says nothing but ohh baby, high riser, you never hear him saying this team needs to do this on offense or why this play worked well. nothing but loud noises and no substance. really miss hearing enberg, packer and the great al mcquire calling a game.
