NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -New Jersey Institute of Technology ended its 51-game losing streak Wednesday night, getting 26 points from Jheryl Wilson in a 61-51 victory over Bryant.
Isaiah Wilkerson added 14 points for NJIT (1-18), and Gary Garris had 13.
NJIT had not won since it defeated Longwood on Feb. 19, 2007. The Highlanders, in their third year of Division I competition, went winless last season after posting a 5-24 record in 2006-07.

Bryant cut the margin to 50-43 on a pair of free throws by Cecil Gresham with 2:37 to play, but Wilkerson answered with a basket on the next possession, then made two free throws to give NJIT an 11-point cushion with 1:40 to go.
