Recap: Saint Josephs vs. Iona

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Carl Jones poured in a game-high 32 points to lead the Saint Joseph's Hawks past the Iona Gaels to a 96-91 win in a non- conference shootout at Hagan Arena.

Langston Galloway netted 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the field for the Hawks (6-4) as they ended a two-game losing slide. C.J. Aiken made an impact as well with 22 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks.

Iona (6-6) came up short despite Lamont Jones tallying 25 points and five assists to lead four players in double-figures. David Laury recorded a double- double with 21 points and 14 rebounds, Sean Armand got into the mix with 17 points and six assists, and A.J. English chipped in 11 points.

The first half was back-and-forth affair that featured six lead changes and seven ties. Iona scored 16 second chance points and nine more off of turnovers to build a narrow 47-45 advantage as the game progressed into the intermission. Saint Joseph's trailed at the break even though it knocked down 53.3 percent of its field goal attempts in the opening 20 minutes.

The Hawks were even better after halftime with makes on 60.7 percent of their shots from the floor, including 7-of-11 from 3-point range. The Gaels faced an 11-point deficit with 12:09 left in regulation, but rallied back in the late stages of the contest. A dunk by Laury cut the Hawks' lead to 90-88 with 37 seconds on the clock, but Saint Joseph's converted all six of its free throws attempts the rest of the way to fend off Iona.

Iona enjoyed a 41-30 edge in the rebounding battle, but the Hawks outscored the visitors, 19-11, at the charity stripe to improve their all-time record against the Gaels to 4-1.
