The Maryland Terrapins were great in their first year in the Big Ten conference. They finished the regular season 27-6, beating Iowa State and losing to Virginia in non-conference play. Maryland defeated Michigan State in both regular season meetings and also beat Wisconsin in their one meeting. But, in the Big Ten Conference Tournament, the Terps fell to Michigan State and were given a 4-seed.
Maryland defeated 13-seed Valparaiso in the second round 65-62 where Melo Trimble led with 14 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals.
Maryland faced 5-seed West Virginia in the the third round of the NCAA Tournament and lost 69-59 after Melo Trimble (who had 15 points and 7 rebounds already) was knocked out of the game with a head injury in the second half.
While Trimble was a first-team all-Big Ten selection, he would have a tough time getting drafted in the first round with the clogged guard class that is entering the 2015 NBA Draft which includes, Emmanuel Mudiay (China),Tyus Jones (Duke), Jerian Grant (Notre Dame),Terry Rozier (Louisville), Kris Dunn (Providence), George Lucas (Brazil), Delon Wright (Utah), Cameron Payne (Murray State).
With Melo Trimble returning, he could be a favorite for Big Ten player of the year next season if he can continue to build on his game in the offseason.
