Greivis Vasquez was part of a team that won a game once at Cameron Indoor. Yeah, it was two years ago. He scored 13 points. And you know what this means? He owns that MF’er:
“That’s my house,” the junior guard said. “I love going in there. It’s going to be fun.”
Sigh. Is there any player, ever, whose swagger was more disproportionate to his skill? If Greivis was 1/10th as good as he thinks he is, he’d be an All-American. As it is, he’s just a mediocre guard on a mediocre team, with a penchant for doing more harm than good for his own squad. I really don’t think I’ve ever disliked a player on one of my own teams more than I do Vasquez. (Albert Belle snub alert.)
Luckily, Gary Williams was there to save my spirits and lay the sarcasm on pretty thick:
[Two years ago Vasquez] was being taunted in Spanish by Duke fans.
“They’re very smart down smart down there,” Williams quipped. “They figure Greivis is from Venezuela, so that means he knows Spanish. It’s amazing.”
Gary would also like to remind you that Duke hasn’t won a National Championship since ’01.
(FYI, the game vs. Duke is Saturday at Noon on ESPN.)
