PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Matt Sullivan scored a career-high 27 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining, as Brown rallied from an 11-point halftime deficit to beat Columbia 58-55 Friday night and snap a three-game skid.
The Bears (9-12, 3-4 Ivy League) trailed 55-53 with 40 seconds left after the Lions' Maodo Lo hit a trey from the corner. Brown worked the ball around the perimeter to set up Sullivan's shot.
Columbia's John Daniels then missed a layup and Brown's Cedric Kuakumensah was fouled on the rebound with 3 seconds remaining. He made both free throws to finish with a career-best 19 points. Alex Rosenberg was fouled on the Lions' last possession, missing a free throw.
Sullivan was 7 of 12 from the field, including a career-high 6 of 9 from long range, while Kuakumensah made 8 of 12 field goals.
Steve Frankoski scored 20 and Rosenberg 13 for Columbia (10-11, 2-5).
Forward Kennedy Meeks, who has averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds at North Carolina, has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to the Tar Heels.
Cal big man Ivan Rabb could have been selected in the top 10 of the NBA draft. Instead, he's returning to Berkeley to make himself, and the Golden Bears, stronger.
Devin Williams' decision last month to sign with an agent and enter the NBA draft has left West Virginia in a tough spot.
