Len Bias, forward

All-American Len Bias, thought by many to be the greatest basketball player to ever wear a Terps uniform, died from the after-effects of a cocaine overdose on June 19, 1986 -- two days after being drafted by the Boston Celtics. He was a Landover native who graduated from Northwestern High School in Hyattsville.
