FRESNO, Calif. -- Tyler Johnson scored 18 points and grabbed a dozen rebounds to lead Fresno State to an 80-64 win over Cal State-Northridge in its home opener Saturday night.
Johnson had 16 points in the first half, including 10 of Fresno State's first 20 points, helping the Bulldogs to a 41-27 lead at intermission.
The entire starting lineup for the Bulldogs (2-1), all returning starters from a year ago, scored in double figures while the team shot a brisk 55.4 percent from the field. Paul Watson added 13 points, Marvelle Harris 12 and Karachi Edo and Cezar Guerrero 10 each. Allen Huddleston added another 10 points off the bench.
Fresno State won for the 26th time in the 31-game series with Northridge.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
