It’s time to show some appreciation in this week’s #WNSTSweet16

5. Greivis Vasquez

Perhaps no player on this list left me as perplexed as Greivis Vasquez. He was one of the greatest and most recognized players in school history but yet one of the most polarizing.

History will likely benefit Vasquez, as his numbers and accomplishments will make him remembered as one of the best to put on a uni, but history will forget the number of times Vasquez was criticized for his flamboyance and decision making.

I ultimately decided to make him fifth. Perhaps that’s too high, but I was around this team a great deal and saw much of the era where the Venezuelan simply did not receive the appreciation he deserved.

    Great list. I still say Steve Blake is underrated though. He was always overshadowed by Dixon but really was the glue of the team for his 4 years. I will never forget the steal he had on Jason (Jay) Williams as Williams was getting instructions from Coach K and never saw Blake coming. Also who knew he would go on to have a 10+ year NBA Career and counting? I dont think anyone ever predicted that at the time he was drafted. As you can tell he was probably my All time favorite terp.

    agree with the Steve Sheppard suggestion…did you consider Herman Veal?
