COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) – Melo Trimble took the same kind of shots he’s been firing up all season.
The difference was that almost all of them went in, and the result was a 23-point performance that carried Maryland past Jacksonville State 92-66 Monday night.
Trimble went 6 for 7 from the field, including 4 for 5 from beyond the arc, and was 7 for 7 at the foul line. His only miss of the night came with just over seven minutes left, and the junior guard followed with a 3-pointer that made it 76-58.
“It’s good to see Melo shoot it well,” coach Mark Turgeon said. “It’s amazing, when a shot goes in it makes everything look better. Melo’s been taking good shots for the most part … but a lot of shots have been rolling out. It just doesn’t feel right. But today they rolled in.”
