The Maryland Terrapins may have won the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, but they’ve lost one of their leaders for possibly the rest of their non-conference schedule.
Senior guard Dez Wells suffered a broken bone in his right wrist during Maryland’s 72-63 win over number 13 Iowa State in the CBE Classic championship game on Nov. 25. He had surgery to repair the fracture three days later in Baltimore, and is expected to miss at least four weeks.
Wells was leading the Terrapins in scoring at 16.2 points a game in Maryland’s first five games. Maryland held off Monmouth 61-56 in College Park in its first game without Wells. Freshman guard Melo Trimble led the way with 24 points, five rebounds and three assists for the Terrapins.
