The Gaels shot 50.7 percent from the field (34 of 67) to the Spartans' 42.6 percent (26 of 61). Iona was 22 of 27 from the foul line while Norfolk State was 8 of 12.

Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
