Iona 105, Canisius 86


NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - Lamont Jones set a career high with 43 points, matching a scoring output from two decades ago for Iona, as the Gaels defeated Canisius 105-86 Thursday night.

Iona (18-5, 10-2), which has scored 100 points or more four times this season, set a season-high with Thursday night's total.

The Gaels led by four points at intermission and outscored Canisius 54-39 in the second to seal it.

Scott Machado added 14 points and 14 assists, while Michael Glover had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Gaels. Iona has won three straight games and five of six.

Gaby Belardo had 27 points and Alshwan Hymes scored 23 to pace the Golden Griffins (4-18, 1-11), who have lost six straight contests.
