Counting on a big weekend from …
Alex Len. He’s regarded as a potential lottery pick, but inconsistency has kept him from dominating on a regular basis in league play. Now would be a good time to do so if the Terrapins have hopes to make the later rounds.
Number to know
56.3 Maryland’s total rebounding percentage, which ranks No. 4 in the country. The Terrapins’ frontcourt – Len, Layman, Shaquille Cleare, Charles Mitchell and James Padgett – have largely been effective.
Dancing shoes or flip-flops?
Flip-flops. The Terrapins’ faint NCAA at-large hopes were killed with an OT loss against Virginia to end the regular season. While it’s unlikely they could get by a Duke team with Ryan Kelly, the thought of Maryland winning four games to take the ACC tournament is even more difficult to imagine.
