Maryland point guard Melo Trimble was named the Big Ten’s Preseason Player of the Year. Last season, Trimble averaged 16.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.3 steals. Trimble was also excellent at getting to the charity stripe, as his 199 made free throws were the 5th most in the country. Trimble should be even better as a sophomore with a year of experience under his belt and a much-improved supporting cast. Maryland’s going to be trotting out their best lineup since the glory days of Gary Williams in the late 90s to early 00s. Speaking of those glory days, Trimble is the first Terp to be named conference preseason Player of the Year since Terence Morris was honored by the ACC before the 1999-2000 season. The Terps’ march to Houston will begin on November 13 with a home game against Mount St. Mary’s. CAN’T WAIT!
