Digest: Terps' Melo Trimble an All-America honorable mention

Maryland men's basketball junior guard Melo Trimble received All-America honorable mention by the Associated Press on Tuesday. Trimble, who averaged 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists, received honorable mention for the second straight season. The first team was composed of guards Frank Mason III of Kansas, Josh Hart of Villanova and Lonzo Ball of UCLA, plus forwards Caleb Swanigan of Purdue and Justin Jackson of North Carolina. Votes were based on the regular season and conference tournaments. Mason was the only unanimous selection, receiving all first-team votes from the same 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly AP Top 25.

Nigel Williams-Goss of Gonzaga led the second team and was joined by fellow juniors Dillon Brooks of Oregon and Johnathan Motley of Baylor, sophomore Luke Kennard of Duke and freshman Malik Monk of Kentucky. The third team included freshmen Josh Jackson of Kansas, Markelle Fultz of Washington and Lauri Markkanen of Arizona, junior Bonzie Colson of Notre Dame and sophomore Ethan Happ of Wisconsin.

Trump declines offer to make Nats first pitch

Presidents have regularly thrown out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day for Washington's major league team going back more than a century, but the tradition will not resume this year. The Nationals invited President Donald Trump to do the honors on Monday afternoon, when the team opens its 2017 season at Nationals Park against the Miami Marlins, but the White House declined the invitation Tuesday, citing a scheduling conflict, according to Nationals spokeswoman Jen Giglio. Earlier on Tuesday, Politico reported that Trump was "in talks" to throw out the first pitch and that he could also spend an inning in the MASN broadcast booth. Trump has some experience: He threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Boston Red Sox hosted the New York Yankees at Fenway Park in 2006.
