Maryland sophomore point guard Melo Trimble has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will return to school.

The 6-foot-2 1/2 point guard pushed his decision right up against the 11:59 PM deadline on Wednesday for underclassmen to withdraw and return to campus.

In the end, it appears Trimble made the right decision as he failed to impress at the NBA Draft Combine. He is not currently projected to be drafted by DraftExpress.com.

CHICAGO -- Melo Trimble knows he didn't perform as well as he could have at the NBA Draft Combine, and will now try to impress during individual workouts beginning next week.

The 6-foot-2 1/2 Maryland point guard met at the Combine with the Knicks, Dallas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Denver and the Lakers.

He has his first workout with the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, when he will go head-to-head with former Oklahoma floor general Isaiah Cousins. Trimble then works out for Milwaukee on Thursday. He has two finals at school and must schedule his workouts around them. He also has workouts scheduled with San Antonio, Atlanta and Philadelphia.

The Nets enter play tonight trailing the New York Knicks by three games in the Atlantic Division.

That lead has fluctuated all season, but it seems Brooklyn will finally have its chance to catch its crosstown rival.

On Monday afternoon, the Nets defeated the New York Knicks by a final score of 88-85.

The Skinny: The offensive pace was fierce to start the game, with the Nets showing great ball movement and the Knicks knocking down three-pointers. Tyson Chandler picked up an early technical foul for taunting after dunking his own rebound over Reggie Evans. Joe Johnson hit his first three three-point attempts to add to his 11 points in the opening frame. Brooklyn led by five, but seven Nets? turnovers in the first quarter allowed the Knicks to cut the deficit to two-points after one.

The Nets? second unit opened the second quarter cold from the field until Kris Humphries provided a jolt of energy. He went on a 7-0 run by himself and pulled down seven rebounds during that stretch to help the Nets open a seven-point lead midway through the second quarter. Brooklyn increased its lead to 10 points as Brook Lopez looked great shooting in both the paint and from the field. Carmelo Anthony started slow, but he began heating up late in the half to help the Knicks get to within six at the break.
