Just a quick hitter here. First Trimble hit the game winning free throws in a 71-70 Maryland win over Oklahoma State. Then rapper Wale mentioned Terrapins point guard Melo Trimble in the song “Groundhog Day.”
Really, you ask? It’s all in this Baltimore Sun story. Here are some other Maryland basketball notes:
- The bench is stronger than many predicted at the start of the year with players like junior guard Jaylen Brantley and L.G. Gill providing important minutes.
- Injuries are playing a role with the rotation for players like Ivan Bender.
- A loss earlier last week at home to Pitt likely cost Maryland a spot in the AP Top 25.
