    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Dewitt Doss made two free throws with 14 seconds left in the third overtime to tie the game, then hit a 14-foot jumper at the buzzer to give Canisius a 90-88 victory over Iona on Sunday.

    Kevin Downey scored 27 points and Doss had 25 for the Golden Griffins (6-13, 4-6 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference), who overcame a 16-point second-half deficit to snap a three-game losing streak.

    Greg Jenkins scored 29 points, Steve Burtt added 18 and Charles Henson had 15 for the Gaels (8-12, 4-6), whose three-game winning streak ended.

    Canisius led only once in the overtimes before the final shot -- when Downey scored with 2:50 left to give the Griffs an 84-83 lead.

    Jenkins' basket with 30 seconds remaining gave Iona its last lead, 88-86.

    After Doss made the two free throws to tie the game, Canisius regained possession on a traveling violation against Iona's Ricky Soliver to set up the game-winning shot.

    The Gaels, who led 26-18 at halftime, were up 48-32 after Gary Springer's three-point play with 10:53 left in regulation.

    Chuck Harris' two free throws with 41 seconds left in regulation capped a 19-4 run that gave Canisius a 62-60 lead. Burtt scored with 3.2 seconds left to send the game into overtime tied at 62-62.

    Downey hit a disputed 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds in the first overtime to tie the game at 72. Videotape, not available at courtside, clearly showed the player with both feet inside the arc.

    Iona led throughout the second overtime until the Griffs' Anthony Byrd scored his only basket with 24 seconds left to tie it at 80.
