Melo Trimble was named first-team All-Big Ten Conference by the league's coaches and media Monday, the third such honor for the Maryland men's basketball standout in as many seasons.
A unanimous selection by the coaches, Trimble led the Terps to a second-place finish in the league this season, securing a No. 3 seed with a dramatic, go-ahead 3-pointer in the final moments of Saturday's 63-60 win over Michigan State.
He finished sixth in the league in scoring (16.9 per game), ninth in assists (3.7) and ninth in free-throw percentage (79.8), and has scored in double figures 29 times this season, including 20 in a row. Trimble was on the media's first team and the coaches' second team as a freshman, and was on both groups' second team last year.
