Congrats are in order for Maryland’s Greivis Vasquez. According to Maryland blog Testudo Times, he all but locked up the ACC Player of the Year Award with his performance in No. 22 Maryland’s 79-72 win over No. 8 Duke.
Vasquez was the best player tonight, bar none. He had 20 points and hit the game-icing shot that’s quite possibly the hardest shot I’ve ever seen him make. There’s no way I’d rather end Greivis Vasquez’s amazing career than this type of game – a huge home win over Duke that he was instrumental in.
As for the ACC player of the year race, it’s over. Vasquez got the win and was sensational in doing so. Jon Scheyer didn’t embarass himself, but he lost and was outdueled by Vasquez in the process. If Scheyer wins, it will be an injustice.
