Maryland's Alex Len and NC State's Rodney Purvis earn weekly ACC basketball honors.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland sophomore Alex Len has been named the ACC Player of the Week and NC State's Rodney Purvis has been selected the conference's Rookie of the Week following their performances this past weekend.

Len came up big for the Terrapins in a 72-69 loss to No. 3 Kentucky on Friday night at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, N.Y. The 7-foot-1 center established career highs with 23 points and 12 rebounds, seven of which came on the offensive end. The Antratsit, Ukraine, sophomore hit on 10-of-18 from the floor in 32 minutes and also had four blocks, which matched a career high.

In his first collegiate game, Purvis tied for the team scoring lead with 16 points and was one of six Wolfpack players in double figures as sixth-ranked NC State opened its season Friday with a 97-59 win over visiting Miami (Ohio). The Raleigh, N.C., native also pulled down two rebounds, handed out one assist and hit on 6-of-11 from the floor, including 3-of-5 from behind the arc.
