After leading at the half, the LIU Brooklyn men's basketball team was shut down in the second stanza, as Robert Morris powered to a 62-49 win over the Blackbirds in the North Athletic Complex Thursday night.

Sophomore Eral Penn (201-F) had a season-high 10 rebounds to lead LIU on the boards, along with eight points and three blocks. With the loss, LIU moves to 12-15 on the season, and 6-9 in the Northeast Conference.

The game was slow to start, as neither team would score for the first three minutes, and both squads shot poorly from the field in the early going. A three-pointer by Batts at 15:51 gave LIU the lead, 5-3, and the Blackbirds held on to the early advantage from there. A 12-2 run that spanned four minutes would give LIU its widest lead of the game, 17-7 with 10 minutes left in the half. RMU would chip away at the lead in the final minute of the stanza, but the Blackbirds led at the halftime break, 27-22.

As the second half got started, junior Jashaun Agosto would score back-to-back baskets, including his 1,000th-point. The two baskets gave the Blackbirds a 31-24 lead, but that wouldn't last long. From there, the RMU offense went to work. The Colonials would score nine unanswered points in the next 90 seconds to retake the lead, 33-31, with 16:39 to play. That run was a small part of a larger one, as Robert Morris would stall LIU's offense, and put together a 24-4 scoring spree over the next nine minutes. The Colonials would go up on the Blackbirds, 48-35 with 9:10 to play. Though LIU would chip away at RMU's lead, the damage was done, and the Colonials took the win, 62-49.

Up next, LIU travels to Loretto to take on league-leader Saint Francis U., Saturday, February 23 at 2 p.m.
