College Park, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Guard Melo Trimble will return to Maryland for his sophomore season, coach Mark Turgeon announced Wednesday.

Trimble had a stellar freshman year as he averaged a team-best 16.2 points while also leading the team in assists (106) and steals (44).

"We did our due diligence and also had a number of great discussions with Melo and his mom regarding what would be best for his future," Turgeon said. "He is excited about playing with a great team and is looking forward to his sophomore year at Maryland."

Trimble helped the Terrapins win a school-record 26 games in the regular season and reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010.

"I am excited about spending another year with my teammates and building on what we accomplished this year," Trimble said. "I want to thank Coach Turgeon for helping my mom and I through this process. This was the best decision for me. Being a member of the Maryland basketball program has been an unbelievable experience and I can't wait to be back in front of the best fans in college basketball next season."
