Highlights of Seth Trimble’s blue and white brawl

The new student at North Carolina State who will be counted on to receive extended minutes, contribute and produce is Seth Trimble. The four-star prospect of 247Sports Composite arrived at UNC in June, and by November he is expected to step into the role of Tar Heels’ reserve point guard and provide comfort to RJ Davis’ small back belt group and Caleb Love.

It’s a luxury that Carolina didn’t have last season. Trimble, standing 6 feet 3, 192 pounds, is a guard with polished talent as a facilitator and distributor. Athletic and explosive, the Wisconsin native is also a plus-dog, which is an added bonus on the Tar Heels bench.

In Saturday’s Blue-White brawl, Trimble gave UNC fans their first glimpse at what kind of player he is and what he could do for Carolina next season. His most impressive plays came on two athletic blocks – one on the edge and one on the base jump – for taller players. Trimble also hit a pair of triples, scored in acrobatic and athletic passes, and showed a one-handed float in the fairway. Check out the full features of Trimble from Melee Blue-White below:

Trimble had a busy summer. Before arriving at UNC in June, he played for Team USA U18 in the FIBA ​​Americas Championship in Mexico. Team USA beat Brazil 102-60 in the championship match. Across six games, Trimble averaged 9.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists, while shooting 51.4 percent (19 to 27) from the field.

“It was a huge recognition to be a part of NBA,” Trimble said. “Playing with these guys was great. We all worked for our sites very hard. I saw the results of some games where we were lazy, and some guys started doing things just to do. But the experience, especially against each other, was unique” .

247 Scouting manager Adam Finkelstein watched Trimble at Team USA practice in Houston before the team left for Mexico.

“He’s a strong body. He’s a good athlete, in terms of carrying that kind of size and still being able to move sideways and offset his feet and really defend you. He can really soar at the edge. He can go through contact,” Finkelstein said of Trimble. “So he’s an athlete in two different ways. He gets into the paint as he pleases. He can run your team. He can also really defend.”

“With Seth, I think the thing is going to be really interesting, as he struggles to play next year, I think he’s really fit, especially after RJ Davisjust like Caleb Love It comes from the ground,” Finkelstein added. RJ is a little compact, but he’s a powerful shot maker. He is very skilled. Now you have that Bulldog in Trimble coming right next to him, who will be able to protect who is the hardest cover guy at that end of the earth, and who will give you that level of fitness to match that smooth skill set of little RJ light guy. I really think these two are going to compliment each other really, really well regardless of the style of play.”

Trimble, brother of former UNC winger and dark artist JP Tokoto, is excited to be able to learn from Davis and Love in his first season at Chapel Hill.

“Being able to develop as a player behind Caleb and RJ is huge for me,” Trimble said in an interview with Sheryl MacMillan of Inside Carolina. “I think they are the best backcourt in college basketball. I am ready to learn from them and compete with them every day. It will really help me.”

Trimble will wear the No. 0 in North Carolina.

“I hope to mature when I was young and to learn every day,” he said. “I want to take the same amount from all the vets coming in on the Open Tours. The thing I want for next year is to be a real Ranger and get everything done by Coach Davis and the staff.”
