NEW YORK -- Travis Nichols scored a game-high 15 points and St. Francis Brooklyn dominated both halves of a 70-51 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson Saturday in a Northeast Conference game.
The Terriers (8-9, 4-2), who led the entire way, took a 36-25 lead at halftime and outscored the Knights 34-26 after the break to win easily.
Fairleigh Dickson's defeat was largely due to a dreadful 3-point performance. The Knights (7-12, 2-4) missed all 16 of their attempts from long range. They went 0 for 12 in the second half. Ben Mockford, meanwhile, scored all 12 of his points for the Terriers on four 3-pointers.
St. Francis Brooklyn, which led by as many as 21 points in the second half, got a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double from Jalen Cannon. The Terriers also outrebounded Fairleigh Dickinson 47-33, 19-11 on the offensive boards.
Melquan Bolding led the Knights with 12 points. Sidney Sanders Jr. added 10.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
