SAN FRANCISCO -- Cole Dickerson scored 20 points and led four players into double figures as San Francisco easily outdistanced Nicholls State 77-48 Saturday night.
Both teams got off to a slow start after a prolonged break for exams -- a two-week break for the Dons, who built a 30-17 lead at intermission.
Dickerson connected on 7 of 10 shots from the field, including 2 of 4 from 3-point range, and pulled down eight rebounds. Tim Derksen added 15 points while Mark Tollefsen and Avry Holmes added 12 and 10 points, respectively.
The Dons (6-4) were a collective 23 of 40 from the field (57.5 percent). San Francisco came into the game averaging 85.2 points per game.
The game was the first meeting between the schools.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
