Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

June 16, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Did Greivis make the right decision?

I think so.

As much as I want Greivis to be a successful point guard, I just don’t know that he’s going to have the talent around him this season to make him look like an all-world point guard. He will still be relied on for scoring, which isn’t the part of his game NBA scouts are worried about.

Is it the right thing for Maryland?

Absolutely. This is Maryland’s best chance to finish above .500 in the ACC, even if Lance Stephenson really isn’t coming to College Park. The Terps certainly needed Vasquez back, and will benefit from having him.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….
