08:15 AM ET 10.12 | Maryland fans may have to get used to hearing about the Terps coming up small. Mark Turgeon said Tuesday that he expects to tinker with a "small ball" lineup of four guards this season, and may blend the group with a raw 7-footer who the Maryland men's basketball coach believes possesses as much potential as he does length. Olexiy ("Alex") Len, a center from Antratsit, Ukraine, only recently turned 18-years-old, "so the kid's still growing, still getting his coordination, but he's got a chance," Turgeon said. ... [At the end of the year] I think you'll look and say he's our most improved player because it's all so new to him and God gave him so much ability that he should improve at a pretty high rate."
