Terrapins men’s basketball guard Melo Trimble earned Associated Press All-American honorable mention Wednesday.
The sophomore led the Terps with 14.8 points and 4.9 assists per game. He also tied for the team lead with 1.2 steals per game, but led the Terps with 2.6 turnovers per game.
Trimble was second in the Big Ten with an 86.8 free-throw percentage but his free throw attempts dropped to 5.1 this season after averaging 6.9 last year. Trimble ranked in the top 15 in the conference in steals, points, and assists and was named second-team All-Big Ten. He was the preseason conference Player of the Year.
While Trimble still excelled at time this season, he struggled shooting down the stretch. His three-point percentage dropped to 31.5 percent this season, down from 42.1 in 2014-15.
Earlier this month, Trimble was named to the national ballot for the Wooden Award and is the Terps’ first AP All-American since former guard Greivis Vasquez in 2010.
Trimble is one of three Terps who may leave school early for the NBA this summer. He’s a projected second-round pick, according to draftexpress.com.
