DENVER -- Chris Udofia scored a career-high 27 points and had four blocked shots as Denver dealt Middle Tennessee its first Sun Belt Conference loss with a 75-60 win Saturday.
Denver led 54-51 before pulling away down the stretch. Udofia had a layup and a three-point play and O'Neale added another three-point play to make it 64-55 with 4:29 remaining.
Udofia sealed the game with a block on one end, and a dunk on the other with 1:44 left that made it 71-56.
Forward Kennedy Meeks, who has averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds at North Carolina, has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to the Tar Heels.
