BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) E.J. Crawford and Rickey McGill each scored 20 points, Ben Perez added 17 with 11 rebounds and Iona controlled most of the way for an 88-70 win over Canisius on Sunday.

Asante Gist added 18 points for Iona, which finished shooting 30 of 56 from field, 14 of 26 from beyond the 3-point arc and 14 of 15 from the foul line. The Gaels also outrebounded the Golden Griffins 40-29 to overcome their 24 personal fouls and 17 turnovers.

Perez's 3-pointer snapped the tie at 4-all and ignited a 19-7 run that ended with another 3 from Perez. Perez buried another 3 for a 26-14 lead and Iona led by double digits for the remainder. Perez finished 5 of 7 from beyond the arc.

Malik Johnson led Canisius with 14 points, Takal Molson scored 13 and Isaiah Reese 10.
