Recap: Iona vs. Denver

New Rochelle, NY (Sports Network) - Lamont Jones scored 20 points and handed out seven assists as he led the Iona Gaels to a 65-58 win over the Denver Pioneers in non-conference play at the Hynes Athletic Center.

Sean Armand, who knocked down 8-of-11 from the floor, added 19 points for the Gaels (1-0), while Tre Bowman chipped in 11 points in the triumph.

The Pioneers (0-1) were paced by Chris Udofia who led four players in double figures with his 20 points. Chase Hallam added 13 points, Brett Olson 12 and Royce O'Neale 10 points in the setback.

Denver simply could not get on track in the first half as the team shot just 6-of-19 from the floor and missed on all eight chances behind the three-point line, en route to a 40-17 deficit at the break.

In the second half the Pioneers stormed back with 57.7 percent accuracy from the field and 6-of-14 on the perimeter, but they simply could not close the gap enough as they suffered the seven-point road loss.
