WASHINGTON -- Stephen Lumpkins scored 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead American University over Lafayette 68-64 Saturday in Patriot League play.
Daniel Munoz added 12 points and John Schoof 11 for American (8-14, 3-4), which shot 52.3 percent (23 of 44) from the floor. Lumpkins was 8 of 10 from the field and combined with Munoz to make all 16 of the Eagles' free throws.
Schoof's 3-pointer with 6:47 left in the first half broke a 14-all tie and sparked a 15-2 run for American. Lumpkins capped the run with a three-point play.
Seth Hinrichs led Lafayette with 18 points and Bryce Scott went 5 of 5 from 3-point range for 17 points, but the Leopards (11-13, 4-3) could not overcome a 26.1 percent (6 of 23) first-half shooting performance.
American, which snapped a two-game skid, held a 31-22 rebounding advantage and dished out 14 assists to six turnovers.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
