NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Maryland Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Melo Trimble has been carrying Maryland basketball’s offense so far this season, averaging 18 points per game on 48 percent shooting.

That’s been enough to get him noticed by CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish, who has Trimble as one of the top 25 players on his National Player of the Year list.

Now, Trimble’s not particularly high on the list. Parrish has a short and sweet paragraph to say about each of his top 10 players, then lists the next 15 in alphabetical order with no commentary about them. Trimble falls into the latter category.
