Over the next two months, I’ll take a look at some potential draft prospects that could find themselves in wine and gold come the end of June. First up, we take a look at Maryland center Alex Len. It was recently announced by Len’s representation that the center will miss the next 4-to-6 months as he undergoes surgery for a stress fracture in his ankle. Prior to that news, many mock drafts had the Cavaliers interested in selecting Len should their pick fall in the 4-6 range. Here, we’ll dive into the film of Maryland’s ACC quarterfinal against North Carolina to see a snapshot of Len’s game.

It appears that another potential NBA lottery pick, will be missing a significant amount of time leading up to the most important period in his lives.
On Saturday we reported that University of Maryland center Alex Len, will be out 4-6 months after undergoing ankle surgery, and the projected first overall pick Nerlens Noel, has been sidelined since January with a torn ACL.
Former Maryland Terrapin Alex Len had surgery to stabilize a partial stress fracture in his left ankle. The 7-1 center will be sidelined for 4-6 months, so that means no pre-draft activities for the big fella.
Len was expected to be a lottery pick, potentially the highest drafted Terrapin since Chris Wilcox (8th pick, 2002).

North Carolina finished tied for first in the Coastal Division and would have won the tiebreakers to earn the right to play in the ACC Championship game.
Unfortunately for the Tar Heels, they were not allowed to do that because of NCAA sanctions. The ACC announced last fall that it would not recognize a Coastal Division title, should UNC win it. And yet, North Carolina made rings...
