SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Louis Garrett had 14 points and San Jose State defeated New Orleans 71-64 Tuesday night.
The Spartans' James Kinney, who entered Tuesday averaging 21.5 points per game, was held to nine on 3-of-18 shooting. He missed all seven of his 3-point tries.
Both teams struggled from behind the 3-point arc, each going 3 of 16.
New Orleans only led in the early going, though San Jose State never owned a lead larger than 11 points. The Privateers got no closer than three points in the second half.
The teams also met in the season opener, with New Orleans winning at home 72-68.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
