Wells instead of Dekker makes a lot of sense, there's a reason they don't pay me the big bucks...
Did Rice miss too much of the B1G season to even make third team? I don't know how much the voters weigh individual's out of conference performance.
1st Team Frank Kaminsky, D'Angelo Russell, Aaron White, Yogi Ferrell, Dez Wells
2nd Team: D J Newbill, Melo Trimble, Brandon Dawson, A J Hammons, Denzel Valentine
3rd team: Malcolm Hill, Travis Trice, James Blackmon, Sam Dekker, Andre Hollins
Wells is very good, but Trimble is MD's best and most important player imo.
While I don't disagree with you, by that criteria the 1st team would likely be Frank Kaminsky + the top 4 PGs in the conference, just given the importance of the position.
Wells has been in beast mode almost all conference season, while Trimble has been more hit or miss. Trimble went back to back games at the end of January without a field goal, for example. Both are very good players and Trimble has the higher ceiling, but Wells was outstanding for Maryland in conference (injured much of the non-conference).
Totally agree; Trimble is the better player over Wells. Also think he's better than Blackmon.
