    NEW YORK (AP) -- Ben Nwachukwu scored 25 points to lead Columbia to a 90-63 victory over Long Island on Tuesday night, the Lions' fourth straight victory.

    Columbia (4-1) jumped out to a 15-2 lead in the game's first five minutes, with Nwachukwu scoring seven points and K.J. Matsui adding six. LIU drew within 19-13 on a steal and layup by Jaytornah Wisseh with 13:06 remaining in the first half, but Brett Loscalzo then hit a 3-pointer and the Lions gradually pulled away to a 54-35 halftime lead.

    The Blackbirds (1-2) never got closer than 11 in the second half.

    James Williams led LIU with 16 points, raising his career total to 1,288, moving him into 14th place on the school's career list.

    Freshman Patrick Foley added 16 and John Baumann had 13 for the Lions.
