Long Island holds off winless Bryant 62-46

NEW YORK (AP) — Jamal Olasewere scored 13 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for his first career double-double and Long Island University held off winless Bryant 62-46 Thursday night in the Northeast Conference opener for both teams.

The game was the first official league contest for the Bulldogs (0-7) and will count in the standings, although Bryant is ineligible for the postseason until 2012-13.

The Blackbirds (3-3) used a 16-3 run early in the second half to build a 48-31 lead, sparked by back-to-back layups by Kenny Onyechi, who also scored 13 points.


Bryant, playing without leading scorer Cecil Gresham, who was sidelined by a knee injury, scored just one field goal in the first 8:26 of the second half.

Jaytornah Wisseh added 10 points and 10 rebounds for Long Island.

Vlad Kondratyev had a career-high 15 points, 11 in the first half, and Papa Lo had nine blocks for the Bulldogs.
