Alex Len Suspended By NCAA For 10 Games, Will Be Eligible After That

Finally, there has been some resolution on the eligibility status of Maryland basketball center Alex Len. The NCAA has ruled that Len can play this season, but he must sit out 10 games due to his involvement with a club team in Europe. The Terps sent out a press release confirming the news earlier.

University of Maryland center Alex Len has been cleared to practice with the men's basketball team and will be eligible to compete with the condition that he must be withheld from 10 regularly scheduled contests.

Len, a 7'1'' freshman center, was recruited late by new coach Mark Turgeon. There were times when it appeared he would not be eligible to play this season at all, so this is a pretty understandable resolution.

Len will not miss any ACC games, but will miss the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, the ACC/Big 10 Challenge game against Illinois and a BB&T Classic game against Notre Dame. He is currently eligible to return for the team's game against Albany on December 28.
