VIVA VASQUEZ!!!! Terps 83 Eastern Kentucky 72 Behind 20 From Greivis

Viva vasquez

Some observations of of a good home victory for the Terps:

Dino’s influence on the team was immediately seen, The Terps played with more fire with Dino handling interior defense in a way that hasn’t occurred this year so far. He nailed 2 mid range jumpers and played a quality 33 minutes.

Jordan came off the bench and played a solid 10 minutes, scoring 4 and getting 5 boards.

Greivis after a slow start was sensational in the late 1st half and 2nd half. His 2 threes really catapulted the Terps to victory. He unleashed his passion tonight using it to keep him on a high level. I watched the special on the U in the 70’s and 80’s and it was clear that only by unleashing its passion did the U prosper.

Landon was back to his usual game tonight 19 points and 9 bounds, after a subpar Villanova game. Landon also benefitted from the return of #33.

A great crowd of 16000 attended the game today–not bad for the holiday season and finals week.

I was not surprised at all by Eastern Kentucky—they had been shooting over 40% on threes all year and sported a 7-2 record.

Yes at 60 all with 8 minutes left I was sweating just a little, but the game always seemed at hand.

Sean Mosley had another solid game with 13 points and 6 rebounds.

Gary commented on the play of Dino and Greivis post game:

On Dino Gregory:
“What he did in February and March for us last year should not be understated because Dave Neal did a great job. But we needed somebody big inside that could control things and Dino did that for us, even though it didn’t result in a lot of points. We have guys that will score but we need guys that will stop people; Dino is one of those people. ”

On Greivis Vasquez:
“I thought Greivis today was great. He was really in tune with what he was trying to do and what we were trying to do.”

The Terps are now 6-3 and have 10 days off until their next matchup on Dec 22.

    I just don’t see it. GV was 0-5 from 3 until the last 2 minutes. This game could have gone MUCH differently. They are very lucky to get a win today.
    GV just can’t shoot. They SHOULDN’T lose a game until the ACC schedule, but, when your star player shoots that bad, that might be a tall order.
    EKU was shooting lights out, and a couple times when they cut the lead to 2, GV missed wide open 3’s. As he did against Villanova. 2-7 is 27%. He is well under that for the season. That is HORRIBLE.
    He is a liability.

    Did you watch the same game I did? Greivis scored the last 7 points of the 1st half and hit virtually every key bucket down the wire. Hispasses to Mosley were sharp as can be.

    A win is always good. The game was closer than the final score. My guess is milbourne and vasquez heard terptalk thursday and took what dino said about them to heart. let’s give dino a bit of thanks for kicking some butt on the show. hail dino!
