Behind Melo Trimble’s 20 points and clutch scoring down the stretch, No. 25 Maryland rallied after blowing a 15-point lead to outlast Iowa 84-76 on Thursday night for its fourth straight victory.

Trimble broke out of a slump with consecutive 3-pointers in the final three minutes to tie the game at 72-all and then pushed the Terrapins (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten) ahead, 75-72, who have also won three in a row on the road (Michigan, Illinois and Iowa).

Maryland was threatening to dismantle the Hawkeyes before Iowa went on a 10-0 run midway through the second half.

The Hawkeyes went ahead 72-69, but an 8-0 spurt fueled by Trimble’s 3s gave Maryland a lead it did not relinquish.

Anthony Cowan had 15 points and six assists for the Terrapins, who shot 56.6 percent from the field and currently sit atop the Big Ten. Justin Jackson added 12 points, nine rebounds and six steals. Damonte Dodd and Jared Nickens both chipped in with 10 points.
