BOSTON (AP) -- Damon Huffman had 19 points and Peter Sullivan added 18 to lead sharp-shooting Brown to a 78-62 victory over Harvard on Friday night.

Brown (18-9, 10-3 Ivy) shot 60.9 percent from the field, 52.6 percent from behind the arc and 92.3 percent from the free throw line. Sullivan was 4-of-7 on 3-pointers while Huffman -- whose 219 career 3-pointers place him 11th all-time in the Ivy League -- made 3-of-4 treys.

Evan Harris led the Crimson with 16 points and seven rebounds, while Jeremy Lin finished with nine points, seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals. Andrew Pusar had 12 points for Harvard.
