>>Maryland Start Trimble To Return
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).
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.
>>Kansas Center To Enter NBA Draft
Kelly Oubre Jr. will leave Kansas after just one season and declare for the 2015 NBA Draft, the university announced Wednesday.
Oubre, a likely lottery pick, finished second among Jayhawk players with 41 steals and earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors while helping Kansas to an 11th straight conference regular-season title.
One of the nation's most sought-after recruits, Oubre had an uneven lone season at Kansas. The 6-foot-7 swingman played sparingly during much of the Jayhawks' non-conference schedule, but saw increased time later in the year and finished with averages of 9.3 points and 5.0 rebounds over 36 games.
>>Xavier's Mack Gets Contract Extension
Xavier men's basketball coach Chris Mack had his contract extended by one year through the 2020-21 season, the school announced Wednesday.
Mack, who signed a two-year contract extension last May, led the Musketeers to a Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament this season. They lost to Arizona to finish with a 23-14 record.
The 45-year-old Mack has a record of 134-71 in six seasons at his alma mater and has guided the Musketeers to the NCAA Tournament five times. He is the only coach in school history to lead the team to three Sweet 16 appearances.
