Maryland center Alex Len said it’s too early to say whether he will return for his junior season or  opt for the NBA draft.

“No, I  haven’t thought about it,” the seven-footer from Ukraine  said after the Terps practiced at Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum for Thursday night’s ACC tournament game against Wake Forest.

“I’m just trying to go ahead day by day and play every game. Right now, I’m focused on Wake Forest and I’m just going to think about it after the season.”

Len is averaging 11.8 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. He began the season by scoring a career-high 23 points against Kentucky in a nationally-televised game that was heavily attended by NBA scouts. He is projected as a top-ten, first-round pick in many mock drafts.

He has scored in single digits in four of his last six games. He has five double-doubles this season, but none since Jan. 22 against Boston College.
