Providence, RI (Sports Network) - Matt Sullivan scored a game-high 27 points and nailed a clutch 3-pointer as the Brown Bears rallied for a 58-55 win over the Columbia Lions in an Ivy League thriller at Pizzitola Sports Center.

Cedric Kuakumensah added 19 points and seven rebounds for Brown (9-12, 3-4 Ivy League) which snapped a three-game losing streak.

Steve Frankoski netted 20 points and Alex Rosenberg registered 13 for Columbia (10-11, 2-5) which has lost five of its last six games. The Lions were without lead scorer Brian Barbour, who was a late scratch.
