Alex Len: Top 5 performances of 2012-13
Nov. 9 vs. Kentucky
Len posted a double-double of 23 points, 12 rebounds, and four blocks in a season-opening loss to Kentucky at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. More importantly for his future, though, it showed Len matched up against another lottery pick, Kentucky's Nerlens Noel.
Nov. 27 vs. Northwestern
Len posted his second double-double of the season with 13 points and 13 rebounds. The win pushed the Terrapins to 5-1 on the year.
Jan. 22 vs. Boston College
Before he struggled offensively a few weeks later against this same Boston College team, Len had a big double-double of 16 points and 13 rebounds in a victory.
April 2 vs. Iowa
In the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden, Len was a focal point but not enough to help Maryland to the championship game. He tallied 16 points, nine rebounds, and six blocks in the loss.
Feb. 16 vs. Duke
Against Duke center Mason Plumlee, Len had 19 points, nine rebounds, and three blocks to help Maryland to an upset at the Comcast Center. At the time, the win appeared to put the Terrapins on track for an NCAA tournament berth.
