Riverdale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Emmy Andujar came off the bench to pour in 28 points, as the Manhattan Jaspers outlasted the Iona Gaels in overtime, 80-77, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference clash at Draddy Gymnasium.

Andujar made good on 12-of-18 of his attempts from the field for Manhattan (21-7, 14-5 MAAC), which has won seven of its last eight bouts. George Beamon tallied a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Rhamel Brown narrowly missed one with nine points, nine rebounds and four blocks.

Tre Bowman shot 4-of-8 from 3-point range for 23 points for Iona (19-9, 16-3 MAAC), which saw its 11-game winning streak come to an end. Sean Armand logged 18 points and nine assists, Isaiah Williams scored 15 points and blocked seven shots and David Laury posted 13 points and 14 boards.

Iona shot 50 percent from the field in the first half, with Manhattan lagging slightly behind at 48.6 percent, but the Jaspers took a 45-35 lead into intermission by attempting nine more shots than their opponent in the opening 20 minutes.

The Gaels gradually chipped away at their deficit in the second stanza and eventually took a one-point lead, 71-69, with 57 seconds left in regulation following an Armand 3-pointer. The Jaspers responded on their next possession when Beamon tied the game on a jumper with 33 seconds left. After both sides missed potential game-winning shots, the contest went to overtime.

The Jaspers made the most of Iona's 14 turnovers by scoring 19 points off those miscues.
