BALTIMORE -- Ryan Cook scored 24 points to help Maryland-Baltimore County defeat Binghamton 59-49 Sunday and lock up the No. 6 seed in the America East Conference tournament.
Neller and Cook carried UMBC, shooting a combined 13 of 28 from the field with nine 3-pointers while the rest of the team shot 7 of 35. The pair teamed up to score 12 points during a 17-9 game-ending run that spanned just over 10 minutes.
Binghamton (3-26, 1-15) outshot UMBC 33 percent (19 of 56) to 31 percent (20 of 63) but committed 20 turnovers, including five over the final 7 minutes.
Jordan Reed, Binghamton's leading scorer, tallied 11 points of 3-of-12 shooting.
Binghamton, the eighth seed, will take on top-seeded Stony Brook in the quarterfinals.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
