    Maryland's backcourt of Melo Trimble, Anthony Cowan Jr. 'still getting used to each other'

    As unlikely as it seemed when the Maryland men's basketball team started recruiting Anthony Cowan Jr. a couple of years ago, Mark Turgeon often thought how great it would be to pair the St. John's High point guard with his own, then freshman Melo Trimble, in the Terps' backcourt.
