Greivis Vasquez got his 2,000th point on Saturday.
He'll probably rank fourth on Maryland's career scoring list by the end of the first half tomorrow.
Which leads to a question that never seemed all that likely: Could the senior guard actually finish No. 1 in points in Terrapin history.
Juan Dixon finished with 2,269 points.
Vasquez enters tomorrow's game with 2,013 points.
So can he get there? Probably not. But it's not impossible.
Consider this. Vasquez has four regular-season games left. He could play up to three in the ACC tournament. He could play up to six in the NCAA tournament.
So there's a minimum of six games and a maximum of 13 remainingin his career. And if he wants to pass Dixon --- that is, score 257 more points before leaving College Park --- these are the per-game averages he requires:
Chances are --- and this isn't going out on a limb --- Maryland probably isn't a Final Four team. With some luck, maybe it could be, but for the sake of argument let's say it doesn't happen. It very well could be a second-weekend-of-the-tournament team, and it could make a deep run in the ACC tournament. Another 11 games isn't out of the question.
So could Vasquez average 23.4 points the rest of the way? Sure. But more likely than anything, he'll have a few games like Saturday's, solid 18-point outings that help the Terps win but don't inflate his stats.
Still, he's just 137 points away from clearing Len Bias as the No. 2 scorer in school history. Vasquez would need to average just 17.1 points in eight games to make that happen, and obviously that average dips considerably with the more games played.
Here's guessing Vasquez passes Bias on the first weekend of the NCAA tournament --- just as Dixon did eight years ago.
