Melo Trimble is securing his names in College Park as a legend. Today’s game winning three from way beyond the arc to beat the Wisconsin Badgers at the buzzer was nothing but extraordinary. Coach Turgeon, who didn’t call a timeout because his mentors taught him that, said “Melo was Melo. We all expect him to make it.”

Here it is:

Now here is how Twitter exploded.

First the Terps themselves including former greats Dez Wells and John Lucas.

Not to forget as current guards and teammates Dion Wiley, Jaylen Brantley, and Jared Nickens.

Even current Maryland quarterback commit, verbally, Dwayne Haskins Jr. got in on the fun.

Another Maryland commit is shooting guard Kevin Huerter from New York.

Pe’Shon Howard who was one of the very first to leave Mark Turgeon’s program admired the greatness.

Current SportsCenter anchor and huge Maryland alum Scott Van Pelt just knows what everyone is thinking.

New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz certainly thinks Trimble is better than Providence’s Kris Dunn.

Probably the one of greatest to ever play for Maryland, Juan Dixon, was pretty happy about the play.

It was not all fun and games and Trimble did send some little kids on the verge of tears.
