LIU Brooklyn 75, Manhattan 48

Brandon Thompson hit seven 3-pointers en route to a career-best
23 points, grabbed six boards and had two steals to lead LIU
Brooklyn to a 75-48 win over Manhattan on Sunday.

Thompson entered the game as the lone LIU Brooklyn (5-4) starter
not averaging double-figure points. His seven treys are the most
for the Blackbirds since Charles Jones hit eight against Wagner in
1998.

Booker Hucks came off the bench for 12 points and Jamal
Olasewere had 11 points and a game-high nine boards for LIU
Brooklyn, which won its fifth straight after opening the season
with four consecutive losses.

After Thompson opened the second half with 3-pointers on
back-to-back possessions, Manhattan’s (3-6) Michael Alvarado (10
points) made two free throws to make the score 43-33 with 14:45
remaining.

But LIU Brooklyn held Manhattan without a field goal until
Andujar Emmy’s (12 points) layup with just under 6 minutes
left.
