CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Will Nelson and Johnathan Jordan scored 13 points each to lead Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to a 60-49 victory in its season opener against Texas Lutheran on Saturday night.
Nelson had nine rebounds for the Islanders.
The Bulldogs trailed just 39-37 with 10:27 remaining, but Cole Martinez hit a 3-pointer to ignite a 13-1 run that gave the Islanders control. Jordan had six points during the surge.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
