Albany Vs. Maryland: Alex Len Raw, But Impressive In Terps' Victory

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.

Len also has been catching the eye of scouts. One coach told CBS' Jeff Goodman that Len will eventually be a first-round pick if he continues to improve.
