Brown Hit with a Barrage of Triples at Columbia

Columbia hits 16 3s, routs Brown 86-60

      NEW YORK (AP) – Chris Crockett scored a career-high 18 points
off the bench, hitting six 3-pointers, and Columbia routed Brown
86-60 Friday night.

      With their previous six Ivy League contests decided by a margin
of five points or fewer, the Lions (14-9, 3-4) took control early.

      Tied at 2, Columbia launched a 31-8 run, hitting nine of its
11-first half 3-pointers. The Lions led 47-24 at the break and by
as many as 33.

      Columbia matched its program record for made 3-pointers,
finishing 16 of 29, while the Bears were 10 of 19.
      Meiko Lyles hit five treys to finish with 17 points for the
Lions. Brian Barbour added 16 points and John Daniels grabbed 10
rebounds.

      Matt Sullivan's 17 points led Brown (7-17, 1-6), which played
without leading scorer Sean McGonagill (14 points per game). The
sophomore guard was injured against Penn last Saturday and snapped
his streak of 51 straight starts.
