Eric Hayes To Play In Spain and Other News

Eric updated his Facebook page today and told the world that he would be headed to Spain.  I couldn't be happier for the kid.  He's going to one of the better professional leagues in Europe.  It's a league that has birthed a few NBA stars: Pau, Rudy Fernandez, and currently, the world's best point guard prospect plays there:  Ricky Rubio.  Hayes will get an opportunity to test himself against the best of Europe.

No word yet as to where in Spain Hayes will ply his trade. I don't think it much matters.  The kid is going to be a professional basketball player and that is an accomplishment in and of itself.

No word yet as to the whereabouts of Landon Milbourne.  I hope the kid lands somewhere but that is far from guaranteed.

In other news, the Terps are slated to play University of Illinois at Madison Square Garden (where else?) in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.  Pitt and Texas are also going to be in NYC for the mini-Tournament.

UPDATE 8/4 9:22PM

There is now a rap song about Greivis Vasquez and not surprisingly, it's awful.  Listen to it here.  Be careful.  Once you hear it; you can't "un-hear" it.  It will be with you forever.  The horror.  The horror.

Always. [...] Read More »

Greivis Vasquez is starting to generate some NBA draft buzz

It's good to be back Soupers. After missing the second half of last semester due to academic reasons that can't be disclosed due to my status as an amateur, then traveling through Europe for a month, I have returned. I'll be around for the foreseeable future, entering my final year at Maryland.I'll pick up where I left off last time: basketball. Gr [...] Read More »

Gary Williams Reflects On Greivis' Career

Picking up the Pieces

Stomach Punch.Call it the most gut-wrenching loss in Maryland history.  Call it the anti-Drew Nicholas.  Whatever you want to call it; I'm left shell shocked and I don't mean that as a pun.  I've been wandering the streets of neighborhood (still freezing cause I live in fucking Chicago) with the sound of Korie Lucious' shot hitting the back iron st [...] Read More »

Michigan State Thread - NCAA Round 2

Form here on out, every game the Terps play is the biggest game the team has played since the National Championship game in 2002.  Simply put, Maryland has an incredible opportunity to make a deep run this year.Yesterday's events have only increased the urgency. Now that Kansas - the odds on favorite - has been eliminated; the Spartans and the Terp [...] Read More »

Houston Game Thread - NCAA First Round

The Terps must wait for 31 of the 32 first round games to start before they can tipoff.  Let's hope that it is worth the wait. I'm not going to waste time profiling the Houston Cougars.  I haven't seen them play.  That's not to say that they aren't capable of beating Maryland.  They are.  Anyone can beat anybody.  Yesterday's games proved that.

Greivis, Gary, and Georgia Tech

I'm back.  I've spent the last 4 days in Phoenix, AZ (where it rained and didn't get above 60 degrees) at my company's National Sales Conference.  Needless to say, I had no time to do any actual work, let alone write a blog post.During my hiatus, both Greivis and Gary won the honors they deserved. POY and COY are appropriate accolades for two men w [...] Read More »

Some Pre-Duke Quotes

As promised (even though I'm a little late), here are some quotes I got from the Duke presser yesterday. It was my first one of these, and it was pretty cool. There were about 25 reporters (including familiar Terp faces like Patrick Stevens, Seth Hoffman, Steve Yanda and Jeff Barker), a bunch of cameras and Chick Hernandez, and Jay Bilas was just c [...] Read More »

A Victory For The Ages. Terps Win In 2OT

What a game.  Vasquez turned in the best second half I can remember.  He was 11 for 23 in the second half.  He wilted down the stretch (finishing 4-14); but who can blame him?  The man played 48 minutes.Vasquez made some mistakes (that 3pt with 6 seconds left in the first OT being the biggest); but he also found an open Hayes for what should have b [...] Read More »
