HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Charles Jenkins scored 35 points to lead Hofstra on a second-half comeback to beat James Madison 92-90 in overtime on Monday night.
The Pride (14-6, 8-1 Colonial Athletic Association) overcame a 15-point deficit in the second half to force overtime and remain in a tie with Virginia Commonwealth for first place in the CAA.
Hofstra trailed 52-38 with 14:47 left to play, but closed the gap to 52-49 thanks to a 11-0 run capped by a 3-pointer from Shemiye McLendon at the 11:22 mark.
The Pride continued to trail until two free throws from McLendon tied the score at 79 with 17 seconds left in regulation. Hofstra made all six of its free-throw attempts in overtime compared to a 4-of-7 effort at the line by the Dukes (15-6, 5-4).
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
