FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) Gerrell Martin scored a career-high 26 points and Jason Brickman scored 14 and compiled 12 more assists as he climbed into fourth place nationally with 987 career assists as LIU Brooklyn defeated Sacred Heart 80-75 in a makeup game Tuesday night.

Brickman scored eight points - including back-to-back 3-pointers - as the Blackbirds (9-18, 4-10 Northeast Conference) opened on a 13-6 run after halftime and shot 71.4 percent in the half.
