COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Deonte Burton scored 21 points on 6-of-7 shooting, and Jerry Evans Jr. finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds as Nevada surged past Air Force 75-56 on Saturday.
Nevada jumped out to an early 10-0 lead as Burton and Evans each sank a 3-pointer. The Falcons crawled back to make it a six-point game, 35-29 at the break.
A 19-7 Wolf Pack surge in the second half capped by an Evans jumper made it 64-45 with 4:36 remaining.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
