Here’s my Greivis Vasquez prediction….
He’s staying in the Draft.
I don’t think it’s the best move for him; and I KNOW it isn’t the best thing for the Terps, but I just get the feeling he’s ready to go pro. Vasquez has had the attitude of someone who wants to be a professional for some 2 years now, and I don’t think he’ll be the “Top 20” prospect next season that some think he will be.
That being said, I won’t be surprised either way. I don’t think anyone really knows what’s going through Greivis’ mind, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he decided to stay just because of his relationship with Gary.
But if I was putting money on it, I’d say he’s gone.
Let’s see what everyone else has to say……

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:
-When I said Brad Bergesen was this team’s ace last week, I meant (mostly) jokingly. He’s had some good starts. Rodrigo Lopez, Jose Mercedes, and Willis Roberts have had good starts too. Let’s not get carried away.
Talk to you tomorrow.
