NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - Lamont Jones scored 22 of his 30 points in the second half as Iona rallied from a six-point halftime deficit to defeat Manhattan 78-70 Sunday in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game.

A layup and two 3-pointers by Jones in the opening 1:15 of the second half gave the Gaels (9-6, 3-1) a 38-37 lead. After the Jaspers (4-10, 2-2) went back in front, Tre Bowman's 3-pointer with 12:56 remaining put Iona ahead to stay, 51-48.
