Fresh off a Sweet 16 run the year before, Lefty Driesell's Maryland Terrapins team entered the 1985-86 season hungry for more. Ranked #19 in the AP Poll the Terrapins had to knock off #1 UNC in order to make a late push to be invited to the NCAA Tournament. After finishing the regular season 15-12 Maryland was happy to accept an invite as the #5 seed in the West.
After beating Pepperdine in the 1st round, Maryland lost to #4 seed and 11th ranked UNLV. Even though the season ended in disappointment the bright spot was their star, Len Bias. Bias averaged 23 points and 7 rebounds per game. Those numbers were good enough to earn him the ACC Player of the Year honors and Consensus 1st Team All American.
"He modeled his post-up game after Bernard King who had the ability to- with a defender on his back- turn in the post and shoot over the top. Easily. Once Lenny had that perfected, everybody was at his mercy."
