He’s the 6th best scorer in Maryland basketball history, behind only Juan Dixon, Len Bias, and Albert King. He’ll pass King before the end of the year. That puts him in the top 3 scorers ever to wear a Terps jersey. He’s second all time for the Terps in assists, with 738 (behind only Steve Blake).
More importantly, he’s been the unquestioned leader of the team for 4 years. He’s taken the Terps to two NCAA tournament berths (with a third almost certainly on the way).
Vazquez also has one of only two triple doubles in Maryland history, which led the Terps to a victory over #3 UNC (one of four victories over top 10 teams during his tenure).
For reference, here is the list of jerseys honored by the University of Maryland. No one has been added to the rafters since Steve Blake in 2003. I think Greivis has done more than enough to cement his place among that rarified company no matter what happens the rest of the year. I hope to see his jersey raised high next Wednesday before the big game against Duke.
