In the wake of the announcement University of Maryland would be inducting Len Bias into its Hall of Fame, posthumously, columnist John Feinstein wondered aloud, ‘Why now?’
More than a quarter-century after his death, Len Bias will be honored among the University of Maryland’s best athletes.
A push to put up a statue of former University of Maryland basketball star Len Bias at his Prince George’s County high school has been shelved after residents questioned the message the monument would send to students.
“Len could do it all,” Driesell said. “He was strong. He could jump. He could shoot from the outside. He could score inside with a jump hook and a drop-step dunk. He was the complete package.”
“[That 2001 team] broke through a ceiling that was here. That really put away a lot of stuff from the Len Bias situation and that’s how important it was for the university – not just the basketball program”.
