Maryland's 83-72 win over Albany on Wednesday night came in Alex Len's debut, and he made his mark. The Ukranian center, who was suspended for the first 10 games of the season, tallied 14 points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots in the Terps' victory. SB Nation's Maryland blog Testudo Times was happy to see Len perform well, even if he was a bit raw.
Len, for his part, might've been the second best player on the Terrapins' roster. He finished with 14 points and 8 rebounds, plus 3 blocks and a host of dunks. His potential is obvious; it's pretty clear, too, how nice it'll be to have an athletic 7-footer on the floor. He was a starter in his first game, and I have to say I like the decision. Still, he's raw and it shows.
The Maryland Terrapins were able to knock off the Albany Great Danes 83-72 in an out of conference tune up game. Maryland was able to put up 44 points in the first half, taking a five point lead into halftime. In the second half, Albany was able to keep it close but not close enough as the Terps held a comfortable lead through the second half.
Terrell Stoglin led the way for the Terps, putting up 22 points with three assists and four rebounds. In his return, center Alex Len was able to make a big impact, scoring 14 points, grabbing eight rebounds and three blocked shots. Gerardo Suero and Luke Devlin led the way for Albany, scoring 22 and 16 points respectively. Suero added another seven rebounds and eight assists.
