One thing we learned last night. Melo Trimble was a probable 1st round pick after his Freshman year. Most Terrapin fans believed if he returned to College Park it would enhance his draft position. The result — after a relatively strong Junior season, he was among many superb Collegiate players bypassed in a mainly meaningless 2nd round of the NBA draft. Many of the players drafted will never even come to the US to attempt to play. Alpha Kaba? 16 FRESHMEN taken in the 1st round—2 Seniors. #1 topic of discussion on the Sports Maven on Saturday.
Melo was a great Terps and his play for Coach Turgeon was stellar and helped to bring Maryland basketball back into the national scene. Here’s hoping for only great things for Melo. We will be following his career closely.
