Recap: Manhattan vs. Iona

Riverdale, NY (Sports Network) - A layup from Emmy Andujar with five seconds left in double-overtime lifted the Manhattan Jaspers to a 74-73 victory over the Iona Gaels in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Association marathon at Draddy Gymnasium.

Rhamel Brown had a massive game with 21 points, 17 rebounds and seven blocks for Manhattan (10-15, 8-7 MAAC) which has won four straight. Shane Richards and Andujar added 15 points apiece and Donovan Kates chipped in 10 points as well for the Jaspers.

Lamont Jones netted 17 points, Sean Armand and David Laury each tacked on 16 points and Taaj Ridley had a double-double of his own with 12 points and 16 rebounds for Iona (15-11). The Gaels have lost four of their last five.

At the end of a tightly contested first half Iona led 33-31 despite shooting 39.4 percent from the floor, by knocking down 5-of-11 from beyond the arc.

The second half had five ties and four lead changes. Andujar brought the teams even, 58-58, with 39 seconds left on a layup and with both squads missing jumpers in the final seconds the game went to overtime.

With the Jaspers down 65-63 with just over a minute left in the first overtime, Brown ripped down an offensive rebound and was fouled on an ensuing shot attempt. Brown nailed both free-throws and neither team scored in the final minute setting up a second extra period.

The two teams traded leads back and forth for much of the second overtime until Iona had a 73-71 lead with less than a minute to play. Michael Alvarado got to the line for Manhattan with 11 seconds left but went just 1-of-2 from the line. However Brown collected his final rebound of the game and six seconds later Andujar scored the game-winning basket.

The game featured 11 ties and nine lead changes with neither team taking a lead larger than seven points.
