Associated Press  |  Last updated January 12, 2012
Julian Boyd scored his 1,000th career point and all five Long Island University starters were in double figures Thursday night as the Blackbirds defeated Fairleigh Dickinson 82-64 for their sixth straight win. C.J. Garner had 16 points, Jamal Olasewere 15, Boyd and Jason Brickman 14 apiece and Michael Culpo 13. Garner also had a career-high nine rebounds. LIU (11-6, 5-0 Northeast Conference) shot only 35.9 percent from the field (23 of 64), but made up for it with 27 of 36 free throws compared to only 5 of 12 for the Knights. The Blackbirds led by 17 in the first half, but Fairleigh Dickinson (1-14, 0-5) clawed back to trail by five early in the second. Leading 58-52, LIU used an 11-0 run to pull away. Lonnie Robinson had 25 points and 12 rebounds, both season highs, to lead the Knights and George Goode had 17 points and 16 rebounds.
