Melo Trimble's three-pointer as time was winding down against Wisconsin lifted Maryland to a 63-60 victory in Madison on Saturday afternoon.
Let's take one more look at it, with fresh quotes Monday from Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon, Robert Carter, Jr., Rasheed Sulaimon, and Trimble himself as they met with the media.
MARK TURGEON, HEAD COACH
“I didn’t realize it was his first game-winner. I watched him play a lot of high school games. I saw him put a lot of nails in the coffin, but that was pretty cool. We all just kind of sat there. I wasn’t going to call timeout. It was his game. Melo did what he does. He was feeling good about himself. He had a really great last nine minutes and I didn’t love the shot. I wish he had gotten a little bit closer, but he knew what he was doing and thank God it went in.”
“Maybe a couple feet closer would have been nice. It was great. It just adds to Melo’s legend.”
MELO TRIMBLE, SOPHOMORE
“I couldn’t believe I took that shot from that deep. I’m surprised I didn’t airball it, seeing as how far I shot it from and I’m just happy it went in.”
“I already knew soon as I got the ball from Rob after he took it out, I knew I was going to take a three. The previous three shots I had took, I missed. They were all on-line and I knew I just had confidence that the next one was going to go in, so that’s why I shot a three.”
“I just wanted to enjoy the moment. It was my first game-winner, so when I made the shot, I was very excited. I didn’t know what to do and that was it.”
ROBERT CARTER, JR, REDSHIRT JUNIOR
“He’s a great player. He’s one of many on this team. Everybody expects him to hit that shot and if he didn’t hit it, somebody is expected to get it and clean it up. We had trust in Melo. He put in the time to make that shot and thank God it went in.”
RASHEED SULAIMON, SENIOR
“He never shies away from the big shot. He always makes the right play and he’s confident. I just see those great qualities in some good players that I’ve played with the last couple years and I definitely see it in him.”
