MOUNT STORY LINES

  • Junior Robinson, Jonah Antonio and Greg Alexander combined for 64 points to lead Mount St. Mary's past LIU Brooklyn, 86-80, on Thursday night before a lively crowd at Knott Arena.  Robinson paced the Mount with 24 points and four assists while Antonio added 21 points.  Alexander went 6-of-7 from the field while matching his career high of 19 points.  The Mount used an 11-0 run early in the second half to take a double-digit lead, and held off a late LIU rally to earn the victory.
  • Mount St. Mary's went 13-of-21 (.619) from three-point range in the win over LIU Brooklyn on Thursday night.  The Mountaineers have made 10 or more three-pointers in each of the past seven games, going 89-for-200 (.4445) over that span.   The Mount is averaging 12.7 three-pointers made per game during the seven-game span.
  • Under head coach Jamion Christian, the Mount is 13-4 in his career and 1-0 this season when facing a team for the second time after losing the first matchup. The last time the Mount was swept in an NEC season series was in 2014-15 when Robert Morris won both games.
