EASTON, Pa. -- Garrison Carr scored 11 of his game-high 23 points in overtime to lead American to a 75-68 victory over Lafayette on Saturday.
American led 29-24 at the half and held a 59-51 lead late in the second half, but the Leopards went on a 9-1 run to tie the score at 60 with 28 seconds left and force overtime. Carr opened the extra period with one 3-pointer and hit two more to give American a 69-64 lead, and he then hit two free throws in the final seconds to seal the win.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
