No one knew quite what to make of Alex Len when he arrived at the University of Maryland a year ago.
The Terps’ leader in points per game (13.9), rebounds per game (8.8) and blocked shots per game (2.6), he has improved so substantially that analysts regularly describe him as one of the best big men in college basketball. More recently, they’ve begun to promote him as — get this — a possible No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft.
