Vasquez 2nd team All-ACC

Greivis Vasquez was voted 2nd team All-ACC by the media for the second straight season. Vasquez is the only player since Lonny Baxter and Juan Dixon to finish 2nd team All-ACC or higher in two straight seasons. Forward Nik Caner-Medley finished with two 3rd team All-ACC selections in his career.

You can read the release from the ACC by clicking here. The selection of Vasquez to 2nd team All-ACC might surprise some Maryland fans but it probably shows that the rest of the league has more respect and appreciation for him than do many of his own fanbase.

In other news Patrick Stevens of the Washington Times reports that N.C. State's Courtney Fells will likely play against Maryland after missing the last game of the year with a groin pull. Vasquez torched Fells in the game last week for 33 points but I have a feeling this game will be different.

Is it just me or do you just know the Terps are losing to NC State on Thursday?

I wouldn't give them good odds but then again Sidney Lowe is on the other sideline.
