Maryland Upsets North Carolina In College Park

The Maryland Terrapins defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels Saturday, improving their record to 17-9 (6-6).

Greivis Vasquez outperformed every other player on the court, finishing the game with only the third triple-double in Maryland school history. Vasquez scored 35 points on 13-24 from the field, he had 11 rebounds and dished out 10 assists. Vasquez had recently hit a slump but definitely had a comeback party against the Tar Heels at Comcast Center today.

Maryland continues to make some noise in bracket discussions but they have a good chance of falling short of the bubble. They have quality wins against Michigan State, Miami, and now UNC, but they also have losses to teams like Morgan State and Florida State. The Terps also have a tough four games remaining in order to make their way to the bracket: Duke, @ NCST, Wake, @ UVA.

I’d love to see my Terps in the tournament, it’s been too long. Gary Williams needs this, the players need this, and the fans need this. But in order for the Terps to win their last games and get past the first round in the tourney, everyone has to have Greivis-like effort in every game.
