Melo Trimble, Maryland PG

While Maryland’s Melo Trimble’s 15.6 points per game for is down from his output of last year, his efficiency is up. Trimble has gotten even better than he was last year, and with the sophomore running the offense, Maryland is ranked in the top ten in the country and doesn’t look to be slowing down. Trimble is taking advantage of the highly talented Maryland roster to the tune of a 5.4 assists per game, which is over 30 percent of his teams’ assists. At 8-1 with only a loss to North Carolina, Maryland’s success and Trimble’s numbers could result in Player of the Year discussion for the 6’ 3” point guard from Washington DC.

Despite their relatively new allegiance to the B1G, Melo Trimble, Diamond Stone, Rasheed Sulaimon and the rest of the Terrapins are harkening back to the ACC Maryland powerhouses that competed for national titles. Playing in the same conference as teams such as Michigan State, Purdue and Indiana means Trimble and company will have to keep up their play, but the Terrapins will be most likely be favored in a majority of their conference games with opportunities to pick up quality wins. Look for Maryland to compete for a high seed in the B1G tournament and the NCAA Tournament in March behind Melo Trimble’s 51 percent shooting from the floor.
