DELARD, Fla. -- Jake Giesler's tip-in with 3 seconds left in overtime lifted Northern Kentucky to a 67-65 win over Stetson Wednesday night.
Anthony Monaco's steal with 9 seconds left set up the final sequence, with Tyler White launching a 3-point attempt that Giesler cleaned up. The Norse (5-5, 1-1 Atlantic Sun) then survived a long heave by the Hatters (3-11, 1-1) at the buzzer.
After Stetson's Willie Green tied the game with 1:33 left, both teams had two opportunities to take the lead. It was a similar situation at the end of regulation after Raymone Andrews of Stetson hit a 3 to tie it at 58 with 1:01 to go.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
