Manhattan 71, Iona 65

NEW YORK (AP) -- Antoine Pearson scored 16 points and reserve Brandon Adams had 15 to help Manhattan defeat Iona 71-65 Sunday in both teams' regular-season finale.

Darryl Crawford added 14 points and Guy Ngarndi 12 for the Jaspers (13-16, 10-8 Metro Atlantic), who snapped a five-game losing streak.

Mike Harris scored 18 points and Justin Marshall 13 for the visiting Gaels (2-27, 1-17), who lost the most games in one season in school history.

Both teams move on to the MAAC tournament later this week in Bridgeport, Conn. Iona plays in the opening round Friday against an opponent that was to be determined late Sunday, and Manhattan meets Siena in the quarterfinals Saturday.

The Jaspers, who held Iona without a field goal over the opening 9:17, led 35-24 at halftime.

The Gaels narrowed the margin to 57-51 after Harris scored with 4:39 left, but never got any closer.

Manhattan was 33-for-42 from the foul line, and Iona was 30-of-46.
