SAN ANTONIO -- Sim Bhullar scored 17 points and grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds Saturday night, leading New Mexico State to its ninth straight win, 75-62 over UTSA.
Michael Hale III led the Roadrunners (5-16, 1-10) with 20 points, and WAC scoring leader Kannon Burrage matched his season average with 18. But Hale and Burrage combined to take 45 shots and make just 13 of them, and UTSA shot 33 percent from the floor as a team.
New Mexico State led 41-32 at halftime and by as many as 14 in the second half. UTSA pulled within 66-60 on Burrage's 3-pointer with 7:21 to play but wouldn't score again until his jumper with 1:16 left.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
