BEAUMONT, Texas -- Stan Brown scored a career-high 18 points to lead Lamar past LIU Brooklyn 81-80 Saturday, snapping a six-game losing streak.
Brown, who grabbed six rebounds, made the game-winning basket with 16 seconds to play. Keilan Blanks, who gave Brown an assist on the game-winning shot, also scored 18 points.
Lamar led 40-31 at halftime. Lamar shot 55 percent from the field for the game, while the Blackbirds (5-7) shot 44.8 percent.
After Brown put Lamar on top 81-80, LIU Brooklyn missed two opportunities to win the game when E. J. Reed and C.J. Garner missed shots.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
