NEW YORK -- C.J. Garner scored 16 points, Brandon Thompson had 14, and Jamal Olasewere tallied 13 to help LIU Brooklyn turn a six-point halftime deficit into a 75-65 win over Monmouth on Saturday in Northeastern Conference play.

Garner, Thompson and Olasewere each made five shots from the field and combined to hit eight 3-pointers for LIU Brooklyn (8-10, 3-3), which shot just 38.5 percent (10 of 26) in the first half and trailed 36-30 at intermission.

Olasewere opened the second half with a three-point play and Thompson hit a 3-pointer to tie it. Then, after Monmouth's Jesse Steele hit a layup, Garner converted a trey to give LIU Brooklyn the lead for good, 39-38.

Steele had 16 points for Monmouth (7-12, 2-4), which cut the deficit to one-point twice but could never retake the lead.

LIU Brooklyn made 14 of 24 shots after intermission, where they led by as many as 11.
