Yep, little Stevie Blake, the point guard for the 2002 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball National Champion Maryland Terrapins, is still in the NBA and thriving.

Blake, now 29, a second round pick by the Washington Wizards, has played in D.C., Milwaukee, Denver and Portland twice. He averages 7.6 points and 25.23 minutes per game. Last year with the Trail Blazers, Blake played over 33 minutes per game averaging 11 points and five assists per game. He is also a 39.2% three-point shooter.

Here, Juwan Howard #6 and Blake #2 of the Portland Trail Blazers pause during a preseason NBA game against the Utah Jazz on October 20, 2009 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon.

Blake's Terp teamates Juan Dixon (Atlanta) and Chris Wilcox (Detroit) are also still playing in the NBA. Lonny Baxter is still playing in Europe. Tahj Holden's pro career abroad was cut short by injury and Bryon Mouton played in the minor leagues and may still be living in the D.C. area - we aren't sure.
