LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Will Neighbour scored 24 points, including two free throws with less than 2 minutes left that gave his team its first lead, and UALR erased a 22-point deficit to beat FAU 65-62 on Thursday night.
Neighbour was 7 of 10 from the field and also pulled down 11 rebounds. Kemy Osse added 12 points, and his put-back with 35 seconds left put the Trojans (13-9, 7-4 Sun Belt) ahead 64-62. UALR forced a miss and a turnover before John Gillon's free throw completed the scoring.
FAU rode a 19-0 first-half run to a 35-19 halftime lead, and the Owls still led 52-36 after Moody's jumper with 11:44 to play. But the Trojans came alive after that, outscoring FAU 29-10 the rest of the way to improve to 11-1 at home this season.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
