NEW YORK -- Rhamel Brown scored 18 points and Manhattan led wire-to-wire in a 65-53 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference win over Marist on Sunday, snapping a two-game skid.
The Jaspers (5-11, 3-3) led 27-9 midway through the first half and shot 68.2 percent (15 of 22) en route to a 40-26 lead at intermission.
The Red Foxes climbed back to within seven points twice late in the game, the last time at 57-50 with 3:46 left, but Manhattan hit 6 of 10 free throws and Brown dunked with 14 seconds remaining for the final margin.
Brown, who was 7 of 10 from the field, but just 4 of 13 from the line, also had seven rebounds and seven blocks. Shane Richards added 11 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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
