NEW YORK (AP) -- Julian Boyd scored 19 points and LIU Brooklyn knocked off Columbia 70-61 Wednesday night for the Blackbirds' first win of the season.

Jamal Olasewere and Jason Brickman added 16 points apiece for LIU Brooklyn (1-4), which extended its winning streak at the Wellness Recreation and Athletic Center to 28 games.

The Blackbirds, coming off a 104-75 loss at No. 8 Kentucky, led by seven in the first half.

After the Lions (4-3) pulled ahead 31-30 with 15:38 to go, LIU Brooklyn pulled away with a 7-0 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Brickman, who also had six assists.

Columbia threatened once more, with Mark Cisco's tip-in trimming the lead to 42-41. The Blackbirds answered with two Boyd free throws and another Brickman 3-pointer, and the Lions never got within four again.

LIU Brooklyn shot 61.1 percent after halftime (11 of 18).

Cisco led Columbia with 18 points and 13 rebounds.
