Recap: Wagner vs. Long Island

Staten Island, NY (Sports Network) - C.J. Garner had 23 points to pace six Long Island players in double figures, as the third-seeded Blackbirds knocked off the No. 2 seed Wagner Seahawks, 94-82, in Northeast Conference Tournament semifinal-round action at the Spiro Sports Center.

Jamal Olasewere had 12 points and 12 rebounds, while Jason Brickman also notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists in the win. The two-time defending NEC champion Blackbirds (19-13) will face the winner of (1) Robert Morris and (5) Mount St. Mary's in Tuesday's Championship Game. Booker Hucks scored 14 points off the bench, and fellow reserves E.J. Reed and Troy Joseph added 13 and 12 points, respectively.

The Seahawks (19-12) were unable to beat LIU for a third time this season, despite 23 points from Jonathon Williams and 18 from Marcus Burton. Latif Rivers had 13 points, albeit on 3-of-16 shooting from the floor. Kenneth Ortiz finished with 11 points, nine assists and eight rebounds in a losing effort.

LIU shot 59.3 percent from the floor and knocked down 6-of-10 3-pointers in the first half, as the Blackbirds claimed a comfortable, 49-29 halftime lead.

They added to that margin in the second stanza behind an even better 72.7- percent effort from the floor (16-of-22). LIU led by as many as 24 with 10 minutes to play. The Seahawks cut the deficit to 11 in the final three minutes, but they were unable to draw any closer.

LIU's hot shooting was more than enough to overcome its 27 turnovers for the game.
