During his junior year (2002), Blake and backcourt mate Juan Dixon led the Terps to the national championship. Blake left college as the Terps' all-time leader in assists with 972 -- the fifth-highest total in NCAA history and the fourth-highest ever in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He was also the first player in ACC history to record at least 1,000 points, 800 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals. Blake holds Maryland records for games played (136) and minutes (4,312).
