TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Trey Kellum tipped in the winning basket with 1 second left to lift Florida A&M to a 46-45 victory over Howard in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game Saturday.
Florida A&M shot 14 of 48 from the field but 5 of 15 on 3-pointers. Howard was 14 of 36 but only 3 of 11 on 3-pointers. The Rattlers scored 17 points off the Bison's 17 turnovers.
The score was tied at 44-all with 2:02 to go. Leary made one free throw to lead 45-44 but missed the second at the 7-second mark before Kellum's tip-in.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
