PG Trim­ble on watch list for na­tional award

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Mary­land men’s bas­ket­ball ju­nior Melo Trim­ble, who has been a fi­nal­ist for the Bob Cousy Award in each of his first two sea­sons in Col­lege Park, has been named to the pre­sea­son watch list of 20 play­ers for the award given to the na­tion’s top col­lege point guard. Trim­ble was one of only two Big Ten point guards named Mon­day, along with Wis­con­sin’s Bron­son Koenig. Former Terp Seth Allen, whose trans­fer to Vir­ginia Tech fol­low­ing his fresh­man sea­son in Col­lege Park in 2013-14 was pre­cip­i­tated in part by Trim­ble’s im­pend­ing ar­rival, was also named. Allen is now a se­nior for the Hok­ies. Trim­ble was one of the pre­sea­son fa­vorites last year, and re­mained in con­tention un­til a ham­string in­jury con­trib­uted to a fall in pro­duc­tion and a pro­longed shoot­ing slump dur­ing the sec­ond half of his sopho­more year. Trim­ble is try­ing to be­come the sec­ond Mary­land point guard to win the honor, fol­low­ing Greivis Vasquez in 2010.
