SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Chris Eversley scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds on Thursday night, leading Cal Poly to a 64-53 victory over Northern Colorado.
Northern Colorado (1-1) had a one-point lead at the half, but a 3-point basket by Eversley early in the second half put Cal Poly (1-1) up for good.
Northern Colorado pulled to within 51-47 on a basket by Connor Osborne with 4:46 left in the game, but two free throws by Chris O'Brien and a basket by Brian Bennett doubled Cal Poly's lead two minutes later.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
