The greatest lesson from Maryland's ACC quarterfinal loss to Georgia Tech was that the Terrapins weren't going to last long in the postseason of Greivis Vasquez didn't play well.
He shot 6-for-21. The Terps stumbled 69-64. And back to College Park they went.
So could that prove to be a needed recalibration for the senior, who was, is and remains the nexus of Maryland's offense.
But there is such a thing as doing too much. Maryland is 6-9 over the last four seasons when Vasquez hoists 20 shots.
That includes a 3-3 mark this year --- defeats of Florida Atlantic, North Carolina and Virginia Tech, and losses to William and Mary, Wake Forest and Georgia Tech.
So there's a fine line for Vasquez, and he might have rediscovered it last week.
"I think that was a tough week for him with everything that happened," coach Gary Williams said. "He knows. He's a senior. I expect him to play really well."
Obviously, Vasquez won't be named ACC player of the year again this week. So maybe with a little less hubbub, he'll be back to his usual self --- and get the 21 points he needs to move into second place on Maryland's career scoring list.
