    NEW YORK -- Charles Hinkle scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead American University to a 66-58 win over Columbia Saturday night.

    American shot 48 percent (24-50) from the field and the team totaled five 3-pointers for the game.

    The Lions took a 52-48 lead with 6:13 left in the second half when Mark Cisco hit consecutive jumpers. But the Eagles eventually pulled ahead by two points with 4:02 remaining on two free throws by Hinkle, who shot 6 of 9 from the line.

    Munoz made two straight baskets to give American enough cushion with a 59-53 lead with 2:37 left.
