MALIBU, Calif. -- Lamond Murray Jr. had 16 points with eight rebounds and Stacy Davis added 14 points as Pepperdine defeated Portland 76-65 Saturday night.
Pepperdine trailed 18-10 early, but pulled within four at the break. The Waves used a 15-4 run fueled by 3-pointers from Brooks and Nikolas Skouen to make the score to 56-44 midway through the second half.
Portland fought back to cut the deficit to five after a Bryce Pressley 3-pointer, but Pepperdine countered as a Davis jumper and two free throws by Major pushed the lead back to 10 with 4:18 left.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
