Eral Penn
The LIU Brooklyn men's basketball team rallied from an 11-point deficit to nearly come back and beat Fairleigh Dickinson on the road Thursday night, but the Blackbirds couldn't overcome the Knights' sharp shooting, and fell, 80-77. Sophomore Eral Penn (201-F) added eight points in the loss, along with seven rebounds.

The Blackbirds came out hot to start the second half, scoring six straight points to close the gap to just one point, 45-44, but FDU answered with an 8-0 run of its own that widened the lead to 53-44. Thought the Knights would eventually take an 11-point lead, 60-49, the Blackbirds kept battling back.

Over the next four minutes, LIU went on a 10-2 run, driven by baskets from Flowers and Clark, that would cut the difference to 62-59 with 8:29 to play, and FDU would call a timeout. Three minutes later, sophomore Eral Penn hit his first career-three pointer, and followed it up with a layup 40 seconds later that put together a one-man 5-0 run, and brought the Blackbirds within two points, 66-64.

But a 4-0 run by the Knights gave them a buffer, 72-66, and that proved to be the difference as the clock wound down. Frias hit a three pointer with 92 seconds left that gave LIU a fighting chance, but the Knights went 6-for-6 at the free throw line to keep the Blackbirds at arm's length. Batts would hit a last-second three as the buzzer sounded, but it was not enough, and LIU fell to the Knights, 80-77.
