TEANECK, N.J. -- Adonis Burbage fell a point short of his season high with 24 as Central Connecticut State overcame a disappointing night from its best player in beating Northeast Conference foe Fairleigh Dickinson 80-71 Saturday night for its third straight win.
Kyle Vinales, who entered ranked first in the NEC and third in Division I averaging 22.4 points, failed to reach double figures for just the second time this year as he finished with seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.
The Blue Devils (10-11, 6-4) picked him up effectively, with the rest of the team making 24 of 52 from the field. Burbage led the effort by making 8 of 14 field goals, including 3 of 9 3-pointers.
Yves Jules more than doubled his previous career high, scoring 34 points off the bench on 12-of-16 shooting, including 6 of 9 treys, for the Knights (7-16, 2-8).
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
