PITTSBURGH -- Lijah Thompson scored 17 points and helped Robert Morris make a 7-2 closing run to defeat Duquesne 64-60 Tuesday night.
The Dukes (5-4) led 32-28 at the break and never trailed in the second half until Johnson, who missed his first four 3-point attempts, drilled a 3 from the right wing to put the Colonials up 57-56 with 3:14 left.
Duquesne regained the advantage at 58-57, then Thompson hit a pair of free throws with 2:15 to go and followed with a layup with 30 seconds left to lead 61-58.
Sean Johnson's layup with 14 seconds to go cut it to one, then the Colonials hit 3 of 4 foul shots 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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
