BOSTON (AP) -- John Baumann scored 17 points Friday to lead Columbia to a 90-70 win over Harvard.

Jim Goffredo paced the Crimson with 17 points while Brad Unger scored 16 with a game-high five rebounds.

Niko Scott and Patrick Foley had 13 each for the Lions (11-8, 2-3 Ivy League), who made a season-high 13 of 23 3-point shots. They were 36 of 63 from the field and outrebounded the Crimson 31-28.

Brett Loscalzo scored 11 points for Columbia and was a perfect 3-3 from behind the arc.

Columbia made 11 of their 13 shots from behind the arc while Scott and Foley both scored in double figures in the first half to take a 54-28 lead at intermission.

The Crimson got a pair of 3-pointers from Drew Housman and Alek Blankenau and a 3-point play by Jeremy Lin at 8:41 of the second half to cut the Columbia lead to 73-50. But Columbia answered with a 7-0 run capped by Joseph Bova's jump shot with 5:13 remaining that put the Lions ahead 82-52.
