    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) -- DeWitt Maxwell scored 14 points, and Fairfield snapped a four-game losing streak Thursday night with a 70-65 victory over Iona.

    Deng Gai and Terrence Todd added 13 points each for the Stags (13-14, 10-7 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference).

    Greg Jenkins and Steve Burtt each scored 22 points for the Gaels (12-15, 8-9), who have lost three of four.

    Fairfield made 51.5 percent of its first-half shots, compared to 34.6 for Iona, and led 44-29 at the break.

    The Gaels opened the second half with a 9-2 run, capped by Justin Marshall's 3-pointer, to pull within 46-38 with 15:38 remaining.

    The Stags extended their lead to 55-41 on a 3-pointer by Tyquawn Goode with 11:24 left, but Iona staged a late rally and pulled to 66-63 on Burtt's basket with 42 seconds left.

    Maxwell and Gai made two free throws each in the final 19 seconds, around a basket by the Gaels' Marvin McCullough, to close the scoring.
