NEW YORK -- The conversation took place during his freshman year at Maryland. Greivis Vasquez, still learning a new language and getting adjusted to playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference, sat down in his coach's office one day to talk about his dreams. "He told me that he wanted to play in the NBA," Gary Williams recalled recently. "I told him, 'You've got the size, you see the court really well, you can shoot fairly well. It's just a matter of getting better every year.' He just took that to heart and went with it. Greivis got better every year.

The pipeline between the tiny private school in Rockville known for its basketball prowess and the huge state university in College Park with a resurgent men's basketball team was opened last year by the unlikeliest of players. Freshman guard Greivis Vasquez, who came to Montrose Christian from Venezuela, became the first Stu Vetter-coached player in more than a decade to choose Maryland. Two more, guard Adrian Bowie and forward Shane Walker, will join him in College Park next season. Those who suspected a dispute between Vetter and Maryland coach Gary Williams see Vasquez as the ultimate olive branch, but the two coaches insist there wasn't a problem between them after Exree Hipp's career fizzled with the Terps in the mid-1990s.

No. 8 John Carroll drew fellow Maryland team and national powerhouse Montrose Christian of Rockville in the second round of the Iolani Classic in Honolulu on Thursday night. The Mustangs proved to be too big - with four starters between 6 feet 6 and 6-8 - and too talented, and beat the Patriots, 43-28. John Carroll (9-4) matched Montrose Christian bucket for bucket in the first quarter before the Mustangs ran on the Patriots in the second and fourth quarters to win. The slow, methodical Mustangs, ranked No. 11 by USA Today, won the opening tip-off and ran off two minutes before taking their first shot.

During the summer he was the leading scorer on his AAU team. For his powerhouse high school program, he's the ultimate “glue guy.” No matter the level of competition, and no matter the quantifiable contributions, Cedric Blossom 's do-it-all game has made him a favorite of coaches and players alike. Blossom's versatility also made him a prime mid-major recruit, with Bryant, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Loyola, Morgan State, New Hampshire and Towson among the programs that expressed interest in the 6-foot-6, 225-pound forward.

The bad news is that his 3.0 average was lower than that of all but one ACC point guard, a reflection of Florida State's 68.6 scoring average.

Montrose Christian basketball coach Stu Vetter confirmed Thursday that highly touted senior shooting guard Terrence Ross withdrew his commitment to Maryland "within the week." "He has reopened his recruitment," Vetter said. "He's going to reopen it for a limited number of schools - no more than four or five. Maryland is still very strong in the picture. He just felt that he wanted to open it up and make sure he was making an informed decision. And that's pretty much it." Vetter said Ross, a four-star prospect at the Rockville high school who grew up in Portland, Ore., is not looking at any West Coast schools.

After playing three years for the nationally ranked boys basketball program at Montrose Christian in Rockville, Terrell Vinson returned home to play his final season for St. Frances, emerging as one of the best players in the area. Vinson, a 6-foot-7 forward, scored 16 points in Tuesday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal win over Loyola. His No. 2 Panthers finished the regular season 18-0 in the A Conference and 14-0 in the Baltimore Catholic League. Vinson, who has a 3.0 grade-point average, had made an oral commitment to Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles, but he reopened his recruiting after the head coach resigned last month.
