As the Maryland men's basketball team looks for ways to produce more points, one future Terp is on a scoring tear.
“I’ve been looking at Maryland, and I see what they’re lacking on: a lot of scoring,” said Trimble, who has increased his average to a team-best 19.5 points per game. “I want to keep improving on it. That way when I get to the next level it’s there already.”
** The Minneapolis Star-Tribune this week profiled Maryland shooting guard target Rashad Vaughn.

Berry is ranked the No. 3 point guard and No. 12 overall recruit in the Class of 2014 by ESPN.
