    Iona 71, Fordham 70

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Steve Burtt scored a game-high 33 points, including 24 in the second half, and undefeated Iona held off Fordham for a 71-70 victory Thursday night.

    Anthony Bruin's jumper gave the Gaels (4-0) a 62-51 lead at 6:32 of the second half, but Fordham went on a 13-0 run -- led by Jermaine Anderson's five points -- to go in front with 3:31 remaining.

    Burtt, Iona's only double-figure scorer, then took charge and scored six straight points to put the Gaels back ahead 68-64 with 55.1 seconds left. Iona, which surprised then-No. 23 Iowa State with an 89-72 victory last weekend, held on from there.

    Anderson scored 24 points, 14 after halftime, to lead the Rams (1-5), who trailed at halftime 34-24 and lost their third straight. Marcus Stout added 18 points for Fordham.
