HOUSTON -- Art Bernardi had 22 points and 12 rebounds Saturday to lead Houston Baptist to its first Great West Conference win of the season, 66-57 over NJIT.
It was Bernardi's fourth straight game with 20 or more points. Caleb Crayton added 12 points for the Huskies (7-14, 1/3 Great West), who scored the last 10 points of the first half to lead 24-21 at the break.
Houston Baptist went ahead to stay at 36-33 on Crayton's 3-pointer.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
