EASTON, Pa. -- Dan Trist scored 16 points, and Lafayette overcame a 15-point, second-half deficit to beat St. Francis (Pa.) 61-58 on Tuesday night.
St. Francis led 41-26 on 3-pointers from Shannon and Whyatt and Ronnie Drinnon's layup 2:10 into the second half.
The Leopards finally went in front 55-53 on Seth Hinrichs' three-point play with 2:18 left. Whyatt's 3-pointer took it back for St. Francis at 56-55, but Ptasinski's two free throws made it 57-56 for the Leopards at 1:35.
Shannon missed a jumper, got the rebound and missed a 3-pointer, and Ptasinski grabbed the rebound and made two free-throws with 14 seconds left for a 59-56 advantage.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
