Terp Upset Noted as Pontiac
March 5, 2009
The Maryland Terrapins rallied from a 16-point deficit and ended North Carolina's ten game winning streak on February 21st when they defeated the Tar Heels 88-85. Junior guard Greivis Vasquez recorded Maryland's first triple-double since 1987, scoring the game-tying layup in regulation and two 3-pointers in overtime to secure a victory and earn the Terps a Pontiac Game Changing Performance nomination.
Now it is up to Maryland fans to determine if the Terps will earn a Pontiac Game Changing Performance for the regular season of NCAA Basketball. Maryland fans can go to pontiac.com/ncaa, where they can view video clips of the eight nominees and vote for the Terps!
Voting begins on Thursday, March 5th and ends at midnight on Saturday, March 14th. CBS will announce the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the NCAA Basketball regular season on the Selection Sunday Show on March 15th.
The winning university earns a contribution to their general scholarship fund from Pontiac. In addition, one lucky individual who visits pontiac.com/ncaa, and enters the "Pontiac Pick and Roll Promotion" will win a trip for four to this year's NCAA Final Four in Detroit.
