Trimble nice enough to let Curry take picture with him

BY PETER HAILEY

Melo Trimble has spent the past couple of days doing what a lot of basketball players do in the summer: working as a counselor at a basketball camp.

Where (and more importantly, who) Trimble is working with, however, is a bit different from most players around the country.

The Maryland point guard is serving as a counselor at Stephen Curry's second annual SC30 camp. Curry, of course, just wrapped up a year in which he took home NBA MVP honors and a Larry O'Brien trophy after beating the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. And earlier today, Trimble tweeted out this picture of the two from his account:

It wasn't the first time the two got together for a picture, though. Back on June 28th, Trimble put this up on Twitter, and was apparently unhappy with Curry being slightly taller than him:

It's nice to see that Curry was able to get past his nerves and ask the All-Big Ten selection to pose for a few photos with him in the past few days. These are probably memories that the Warriors point guard won't soon forget.

Now, there's only one thing missing from the snapshots: Where's Riley? Was she too busy singing Big Sean to hop in the frame? Maybe next time.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.

The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.

He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
