Collins returns; Vasquez, Teague decisions to come

Dwayne Collins will play his senior season at Miami after all. Collins, a 6-8 power forward, took his name out of the NBA Draft.

He can now go back to being ignored by Frank Haith in Miami's offense, except when the Canes play Duke.

Elsewhere, the middle landscape of the ACC hinges on the decisions of Maryland's Grevis Vasquez and Wake Forest's Jeff Teague, who have until June 15 to stay or leave the draft.

Wake's a tourney team with Teague but a fringe player, at best, in the league without him.

Maryland's fighting for 12th without Vaz and back in the eight- to nine-win ACC range with him.

Either way, Miami's still the pick for last.
