STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) — Carson Puriefoy scored two baskets in 16 seconds, the first four points in a 33-7 second-half rally that propelled Stony Brook to a 69-60 comeback win over Columbia Saturday night.
Columbia opened the second half with 3-pointers from Luke Petrasek and Grant Mullins to build a 42-25 lead a little over two minutes in.
The Seawolves (9-4) called timeout at 17:38 and Puriefoy left the huddle to score a layup, steal the ball from Petrasek, score another layup and, after second Petrasek turnover, pass to Jameel Warney for a layup in what became an 11-0 surge.
Warney scored 20 points — his sixth straight 20-point game — Puriefoy added 18 and Ahmad Walker 11.
Mullins scored 14 for Columbia (9-6), Maodo Lo 12 and Petrasek 11. The Lions shot 38 percent — 8-for-28 after halftime — with 19 turnovers.
Stony Brook came from 16 down last season to beat Columbia by a point.
