ST. LOUIS – Maryland junior guard Melo Trimble was tabbed to the 2016-17 USBWA Men’s All-District Team, announced Tuesday.

Trimble led Maryland (24-7, 12-6) in scoring and ranked sixth in the Big Ten Conference, averaging 16.9 points per game for the Terps. He was named a First Team All-Big Ten selection on Monday.

The Upper Marlboro, Md., native is one of five players in Maryland history to record 1,400 points, 350 assists and 100 steals, joining Terrapin legends Juan Dixon, Greivis Vasquez, Walt Williams and Johnny Rhodes.

Trimble is second all-time in career made free throws at Maryland and has 29 double-figure scoring performances this season, including a current streak of 20 straight.
