NEW YORK (AP) - Rodney Pryor scored 21 points and corralled 11 rebounds as Robert Morris upended LIU Brooklyn 70-60 in a Northeast Conference clash on Thursday night.

Elijah Minnie and Isaiah Still scored 13 each in a game with five ties and four lead changes. Minnie sparked a breakaway 8-1 spurt sinking one of his three 3-pointers with 3:30 left in the game. He capped it with a soaring, one-handed dunk, pushing a 58-57 lead to 66-58 when LIU called time with 1:15 to go. The Colonials (3-13, 1-2) scored just enough at the foul line to maintain the edge.

Jerome Frink led the Blackbirds (7-7, 1-2) with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Martin Hermannsson and Trevin Woods scored 10 each.

The Colonials made 9 of 22 shots from 3-point range to LIU Brooklyn’s 4 of 22. Robert Morris held a 43-39 edge on the boards, outscoring the Blackbirds 14-9 in second-chance points.
