DENVER -- University of Denver junior forward Chris Udofia scored 18 points and had five blocked shots, leading the Pioneers to a share of the Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship and their 10th-straight win with a 78-54 rout of Louisiana Tech on Saturday night.
Denver (21-8, 16-2 WAC), which shares the WAC crown with the Bulldogs (26-5, 16-2), will head to the conference tournament in Las Vegas with a 17-1 record since New Year's Eve and will open WAC Tournament play on Thursday at the Orleans Arena.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
