Maryland’s Melo Trimble Has Great Week In GLeague

Former Maryland star Melo Trimble has been lighting up the NBA G League.

 

The 6-3 guard is sixth in the NBAGL in scoring and eighth in assists this season, averaging a whopping 26.7 points and 6.7 dimes for the Iowa Wolves.

 

Recently the red hot Trimble poured in 37 points in a 141-140 loss to the Northern Arizona Sun on Nov. 9.

 

“Melo’s team didn’t get the win, but man, did he say, ‘hey, give me a shot at the NBA,’ wrote dbknews.com’s Connor Newcomb of Trimble’s explosion against the Suns.

 

Inside MD Sports’ Jeff Ermann is also bullish on the former Terp’s chances of getting to the Association

 

“He’s opening some eyes early. Trimble might have a chance to play in the NBA this season,” Ermann wrote. “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.
