TULSA, Okla. -- Zeldric King scored 9 points in the final 6 1/2 minutes, including a crucial 3-pointer with 53 seconds left, as Tulsa stormed from behind to defeat Oral Roberts 72-68 on Saturday.
Tulsa (7-5) trailed by 13 points at the half and by 15 early in the second half. It didn't make much headway until about 10 1/2 minutes to play, when a 3-pointer by James Woodard cut the Oral Roberts lead to 51-43. Tulsa gradually chipped away after that.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
