INDIANAPOLIS -- Walt Lemon Jr. scored 19 points and Tyshon Pickett had 18 points and 10 rebounds, leading unbeaten Bradley to a 79-72 victory over IUPUI on Saturday night.
Jake Eastman chipped in 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting for the Braves (3-0), who went on an 8-1 run with 2:51 remaining to turn a 65-65 tie into a 73-66 lead, then hit enough free throws in the final minute to secure the win.
John Hart scored a career-high 26 points, including four 3-pointers, off the bench for the Jaguars (2-2), and Greg Rice and Mitchell Patton added 15 apiece. Donovan Gibbs had a team-high eight rebounds.
IUPUI led 34-30 after a back-and-forth first half. After halftime, neither team managed more than a six-point advantage before Bradley's late run.
The game was only the third ever between the schools, and the first since the 2001-02 season.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
