BOSTON -- Joel Smith scored 29 points, including 16 after the end of regulation, to help Northeastern edge William & Mary 95-91 in two overtimes Wednesday night for its seventh consecutive win.
Eleven of Smith's points came in the second overtime. His layup put the Huskies (12-7, 7-0 Colonial Athletic Association) ahead to stay, 83-82, with 3:27 remaining, and his 3-pointer made it a four-point lead.
William & Mary shot 73.1 percent (19 of 26) in the second half to rally from a 53-39 deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation.
Brandon Britt's layup with 13 seconds left forced overtime.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
