CLEVELAND -- Marlin Mason led five Cleveland State players in double digits with 17 points as the Vikings rolled over Old Dominion 67-55 Saturday in a nonconference affair.
Cleveland State (3-1) used a 15-1 second-half run to overcome a five-point halftime deficit. Charlie Lee started the run with a 3-pointer, and Tim Kamczyc's jumper with 16:56 left put the Vikings ahead 36-35.
Old Dominion (1-3) led for most of the first half, snapping a 10-all tie with 12:10 left in the first with a 9-0 run. The Monarchs led 30-25 at halftime and 34-27 with 18:55 to play before the Vikings' go-ahead run.
Nine different players scored for Old Dominion, with Dimitrie Batten and Keenan Palmore tying with a team-high nine points.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
