Melo Trimble named finalist for Cousy Award honoring top point guards.

Maryland junior Melo Trimble has been named a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the country's top college point guard.

Going into Tuesday's game at Ohio State, Trimble leads the Terps with a career-high 17.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists a game.

Maryland (19-2, 7-1) is tied with Wisconsin for first place in the Big Ten.

The Terps, who moved up from No. 22 to No. 17 in the Associated  Press Top 25 on Monday, have won six straight games and are 4-0 on the road in the Big Ten.

Trimble will be trying to duplicate the feat of former Maryland All-American Greivis Vasquez, who won the Cousy Award in 2010.

He is the only point guard in the Big Ten to make the list of finalists. The list will be cut to five next month.

The others named Monday were:
  

Nigel Williams-Goss, Gonzaga

Monte Morris, Iowa St.

Frank Mason, Kansas

De'Aaron Fox, Kentucky

Joel Berry II, North Carolina

Dennis Smith, North Carolina State

Lonzo Ball, UCLA

Jalen Brunson, Villanova

Markelle Fultz, Washington
