    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Downey scored 19 points to lead Canisius to a 75-63 win over Iona Monday night.

    Downey was one of five Golden Griffins in double figures. Dewitt Doss had 17 points, Chuck Harris and Jon Popofski each had 12 and Darnell Wilson added 10.

    Leading 24-22 with 7:04 left in the first half, Canisius (4-9, 2-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) closed out the stanza with a 13-2 run for a 37-26 halftime lead.

    Iona (4-10, 0-5) opened the second half with a 3-pointer by Ricky Soliver to cut the Canisius lead to eight. But Canisius maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the half after Downey answered with a field goal and Harris followed with a 3-pointer.

    Canisius matched a season-high with nine 3-pointers in the game.

    Greg Jenkins led the Gaels with 20 points. Steve Burtt had 18 for Iona, but went 1-of-10 from beyond the 3-point arc.

    Canisius snapped an eight-game losing streak to Iona that included a loss to the Gaels in the first round of the MAAC Tournament last season. Iona hasn't won on the road this season.
