Life went on at Maryland after Gene Shue left in the 1950s, and after Tom McMillen, Len Elmore and John Lucas left in the 1970s. It went on after Walt Williams and Joe Smith and Juan Dixon.

It also went on after Lefty Driesell resigned and Gary Williams retired.

Now it goes on after Melo Trimble left a year early after three remarkable seasons. The Terps began the post-Melo era Thursday night in a men’s basketball exhibition game against Randolph-Macon.

Led by sophomore Anthony Cowan, who shared the point guard position last season with Trimble, and freshman guard Darryl Morsell (Mount Saint Joseph), who will share it this season with Cowan, Maryland doubled up on its Division III opponent, 88-44.
