Coming off their best season since winning the national title in 2002, Maryland has some serious holes to fill as their top three scorers from last season’s ACC co-champion are gone including the flamboyant Greivis Vasquez.  One thing is for sure though, Gary Williams will coach his guys up and have the Terps once again competing for a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
