"Losing Alex Len to the NBA took Maryland out of any real contention for a run at an ACC title in their final season in the league..." I personally don't agree with that whatsoever. Len was important to Maryland but he wouldn't be as important to this year's team. While I don't think it is too likely that the Terps win the ACC this year, I definitely wouldn't say Maryland has no shot of contending. If this was 2012-2013, sure. But it's not. -Dave
