The Associated Press has released its Big Ten awards and all-conference teams, and two Maryland players are on the list.

Freshman center Diamond Stone was named the Big Ten Newcomer of the Year, while sophomore guard Melo Trimble was named to the All-Big Ten second team. Michigan State's Denzel Valentine is the conference player of the year, while Indiana's Tom Crean takes home conference coach of the year honors. Purdue's A.J. Hammons was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.

No other Terrapins received honors. That's something that would have been quite surprising at back in October, but isn't too shocking after the team went 2-4 to close out the regular season.
