It would be understandable for former Maryland star Melo Trimble, who was not selected in last month's NBA Draft, to second-guess his decision to stay at Maryland for three years because, as it turned out, his best opportunity to get drafted may well have been after his freshman season.
Trimble burst onto the Big Ten scene during the 2014-15 season, scoring 16.2 points per game, getting to the rim with ease and shooting 41.2 percent from 3-point range. But injuries and a prolonged shooting slump slowed Trimble during the second half of his sophomore year, and concerns over his shooting lingered throughout his junior campaign.
Trimble, now a part of the Philadelphia 76ers Summer League team, reflected on his decision to stay in school after his freshman year when he joined Glenn Clark Radio July 6. He also explained why he's more prepared for a long professional career now than he was two years ago.
