Greivis Vasquez

Scouting Report

Vasquez is a familiar name to even casual college basketball observers. As a four-year starter and star at one of the ACC's most storied programs, he enjoyed probably his finest season as a senior at Maryland, averaging a career-high 19.6 points and shooting 35.9 percent from 3-point range while recording a career-best 56 steals. The Caracas, Venezuela, native rode those numbers to ACC Player of the Year honors, becoming the first foreign-born player to win that award. He had a career-high 41 points in 48 minutes in a 104-100, double-overtime win over Virginia Tech on Feb. 27. Vasquez also played well in the NCAA tournament, leading the Terrapins into the second round, where his 26-point effort wasn't enough in an 85-83 loss to Michigan State. Vasquez, who led Maryland in scoring in each of his final three seasons, is also known as a tenacious defender thanks to his length and is considered a solid distributor of the basketball. His perimeter shot is a bit shaky, as evidenced by his career 42.5 shooting percentage. Despite his flaws, Vasquez remains an intriguing prospect because of his considerable experience in high-profile games. He does not have first-round ability but will likely be selected in the mid-to-late second round.
