Former Maryland star Melo Trimble has had success in his first season in the NBA G League, but Saturday night may have been his best performance.
Trimble posted his first professional triple-double as the Iowa Wolves beat the Oklahoma City Blue 117-90. He recorded 20 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds on 6-of-9 shooting from the field.

His performance also included three steals and 5-of-6 shooting from downtown, showing off the same skills we were so lucky to take in for three years in College Park.
The former Terp never recorded a triple-double at Maryland, but came close during his sophomore year. On Jan. 2, 2016, Trimble posted 24 points, eight assists and eight rebounds in a 72-59 road win over Northwestern.
In 30 games with the Wolves this season, Trimble is averaging 17.6 points, 5.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds while shooting 44 percent from the field, 34 percent from deep and 88.9 percent from the line.
After this incredible performance, could the NBA be the next stop for Melo?
