Quinnipiac vs Iona

Quinnipiac 98, Iona 92

  •  

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Ike Azotam scored 21 points, Jamee Jackson and Zaid Hearst each added 17 and Quinnipiac survived a dominant performance by Lamont "Momo" Jones to beat Iona 98-92 in overtime in the Paradise Jam on Friday night.

Jones, who matched a career high for the Gaels (1-1) with 40 points, hit a 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 79. Hearst missed an 18-footer, sending the game to overtime.

But Quinnipiac (2-1) scored the first six points in the extra session and never again trailed.

The Bobcats' win sets up an all-Connecticut winner's bracket semifinals on Sunday night, when Quinnipiac will face No. 23 Connecticut. The Huskies beat Wake Forest 77-71 earlier on Friday.

Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore was an assistant for 13 years at UConn under former coach Jim Calhoun before taking over the Bobcats in 2007.
