YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Kendrick Perry pumped in four 3-pointers and scored 19 points to spark Youngstown State to a 71-59 win over Bethune-Cookman Tuesday night.
Perry gave Youngstown State the lead for good with a 3-pointer five minutes into the contest and the Penguins gradually pulled away, building a 31-22 lead at halftime. Perry, the 2013-14 preseason Horizon League Player of the Year, entered the game with a four-game streak of games in which he scored at least 27 points.
Ryan Weber tossed in 16 points and Bobby Hain added 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Penguins (8-5), who lost back-to-back games coming into the contest, including a 91-73 loss at Pittsburgh Saturday.
The Wildcats (2-12) now have lost 10 straight games.
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point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.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.
