LAKE CHARLES, La. -- Craig McFerrin scored 18 points and McNeese State pulled away easily in the second half, beating Lamar 74-50 on Saturday.
Lamar had a 10-point lead in the first half and went into halftime with a 31-23 advantage. But McNeese State dominated the second half, outscoring the Cardinals 28-2 at one point en route to the victory.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
