BALTIMORE -- Dylon Cormier had 25 points and 11 rebounds and Loyola of Maryland dominated the second half on Monday night to pull away from Lafayette 77-63.
Loyola overcame a 37-35 halftime deficit by opening the first 4 minutes of the second on a 9-2 run. Cormier scored 6 during that stretch and 18 in the second half for the Greyhounds.
Cormier's jumper with 9:15 left in the game put the Greyhounds up 60-49 and Lafayette never challenged again.
Lafayette (4-12, 0-5) built its biggest lead at 32-26 when Zach Rufer capped a 15-5 run on a 3-pointer with 6:42 left in the half. Nick Lindner led the Leopards with 17 points and seven assists while Joey Ptasinski added 15 points on 5-of-8 3-point shooting.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
