    ELON, N.C. -- Brian Barbour scored 20 points and Mark Cisco added 18 for Columbia in a 65-60 win over Elon on Sunday for the Lions' fourth straight win.

    Trailing for most of the game and down by six points at the break, the Lions (10-5) pulled within 42-41 on a jumper by Cory Osetkowski with 12:50 remaining in the game. Osetkowski followed that with a three-point play, starting a 14-9 run and Columbia led the rest of the way.

    The Lions outscored the Phoenix 37-26 in the second half to clinch the comeback.

    Columbia outshot Elon from the floor 55.5 percent (15 of 27) to 34.2 percent (12 of 35) in the second half. The Phoenix outrebounded the Lions 44-31 in the game, though.

    Lucas Troutman scored 14 points to pace Elon (7-6), which has lost a season-high five games.
