Maryland Minute - 7.1.13 - More Alex Len Coverage and It Looks Like Jalen Tabor Has a Top Two

More coverage on Alex Len being selected #5 overall by the Phoenix Suns, as well as Maryland's efforts to continue their stay home movement, as one prized local 2014 recruit, CB Jalen Tabor, apparently likes Maryland a lot. Oh and 365 days left in the ACC.

Alex Len pick shows new Suns don't care about sizzle
Ugh. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of these articles. Some of the arguments people have about why Len shouldn't be drafted so high are ridiculous.

Alex Len says he can show immediate improvement in the NBA with the Suns, because ‘in college, the spacing sucks’ | ProBasketballTalk

“In the NBA, there’s better spacing,” Len said. “It makes it easier on the big guys because we have more space to work on the block. But I know I can contribute right away on the defensive end of the floor — I have size, I can alter shots, I can run the floor. And on offense, we’ll see what coach wants me to do.”

Interesting. Len says spacing in college "sucks." Says a few other interesting nuggets worth reading.
