We are in enjoying an almost unprecedented level of depth. I for one am enjoying this ride. Who would you say is our best player?
Faust? Len? Mitchell?
Bruce Cunningham thinks its Seth...(at least that's what he said on 105.7)
I don't get it.
DWells took over for a bit and stopped the VT run. For now he has my vote. By tournament time, I hope we're still debating the issue and the list of options grows to about 8............
You gave us three choices and one was Nick Faust and none was Dez Wells. I'd say that's a pretty major fail on your part.

It's the guy who drew 20 scouts to the game.
It's not Faust, I can tell you that.
21. and yeah, Len is an easy answer.
But the truth is, it will vary from night to night even as Len is a surefire lottery pick.
This, and hes not even playing all that great lately. Hes still our best player though, he sleepwalks to 14 and 8.

I am thrilled to say that this is a hard question!
I love our depth, but its pretty clearly between Dez and Len
And none were either of the guys who scored 20 or more today.
It's pretty clearly either Wells or Len, with everyone else also being able to step up from game to game.
This isn't a hard question. The hard question is: Alex Len is the best Maryland player since _________?.
Also not a hard question. Greivis Vasquez.
I love Greivis. It's not ridiculous to say Alex Len is better. He isn't going to be drafted top 5 for fun. He's pretty good.
Greivis was as good as he was with a 6'5 center for part of his career though so that's pretty damn impressive.

If you're talking most talented, then yeah I guess you could make the argument. If the question is "who was the better player" which is how you phrased it, then yes it is ridiculous to say Alex Len right now is a better college player than Greivis Vasquez
Alex Len as a soph vs Greivis as a soph is at very least an interesting question. Although obviously best player-season would go to Greivis 2010.
Yea that was what I was alluding to.
I really have a hard time deciding between Len and Wells.
Alex Len's season isn't over yet. Clearly if you compare their careers GV's 4 years is better than Len's 1. I looked at "who is better" as in if you could only have one on your team which one would you take. I'd take Len. Even when he doesn't block the shot he is responsible for so many bad shots in the paint. On offense he is the reason that we can get an open 3 any time we want.
Me, too. Len is obviously the better NBA prospect. I'd say Wells is the better all around basketball player.
The thing is, I feel like Len can do what he's doing now playing against anyone. I could honestly see him getting 16 and 9 playing against KG and the Celtics if he had enough minutes. Dez on the other hand, wouldn't be able to overpower small forwards in the NBA the way he can in college.
So Dez might be the best player on our team for this season, but I don't think he's the most talented.

You said "Maryland player" so its totally fair to compare Greivis's senior season with Len's sophomore season considering this will be his last year here. If there is a must-win game tomorrow and you can only take one or the other, I'm taking 2009-10 Greivis over 2012-13 Len 10 times out of 10.
Len isn't even necessarily the best player on the team right now. Obviously his pro potential is better than any other Maryland player in my lifetime. But that wasn't the question.
