Maryland’s Melo Trimble Has Great Week In GLeague

Former Maryland star Melo Trimble had a strong week in the NBA G League.


The 6-3 guard averaged 17.3 points and 6.3 assists for the Iowa Wolves in three games last week, guiding the team to a 2-1 record.


It included pouring in a 17-point, 10-assist double double in a 117-98 win over the Memphis Hustle on Dec. 13, when he was an impressive plus-minus of +21 for the game.


On the season, Trimble is 15th in scoring in the NBAGL, averaging a team-leading 20.7 points and a team-high 6.1 assists this season for Iowa.


“Trimble finds himself on the [G League] prospects-to-watch list for a second time this season,” wrote gleague.nba.com’s Drew Zlogar. “The former Maryland Terrapin has enjoyed an incredible season so far for the Timberwolves affiliate team.”


His strong year also included a 37 point explosion in a 141-140 loss to the Northern Arizona Sun on Nov. 9.


“He’s opening some eyes early. Trimble might have a chance to play in the NBA this season,” wrote Inside MD Sports’ Jeff Erman. “Although he plays for Minnesota’s affiliate, he can be signed by any NBA team.”


A college star at Maryland, Trimble led the team in scoring and assists as a junior last season, averaging 16.8 points and 3.7 assists, while leading the Terps to 24-9 record and the NCAA Tournament.


He graduated 13th all time in career scoring and 12th all-time in assists at the school.


ESPN’s No. 29 player in the 2014 high school class, Trimble averaged 23.1 points as a senior for Bishop O’Connell (Arlington, VA), when he was named the 2014 Washington Post All-Metro Player of the Year.
