WASHINGTON (AP) - Grant Mullins scored 20 points and backcourt partner Brian Barbour added 19 to lift Columbia to a 54-42 nonconference victory over American University on Sunday.

The Eagles (4-6) got within six, 44-38, on John Schoof's 3-pointer with 3:55 left, but Barbour scored nine points down the stretch.

Barbour became the 25th Columbia player to reach 1,000 career points and now has 1,016.
