    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) -- Arturo Dubois scored a career-high 31 points and Manhattan pulled away to beat winless Iona 73-63 on Friday night.

    Devon Austin added 16 points, and Antoine Pearson had nine for the Jaspers (7-8, 4-1 Metro Atlantic) in their fourth straight win.

    Anthony Bruin and Devon Clarke each scored 18 points for the Gaels (0-15, 0-5), the only winless team in Division I.

    Iona matched the school mark for consecutive losses. The 1974-75 Gaels started the season 4-4 before losing their final 15 games.

    DuBois had 17 points and Austin 12 to help Manhattan take a 40-29 lead at halftime.

    The Gaels pulled even at 57 on Bruin's basket with 6:29 remaining and took their only lead at 59-57 when Justin Marshall converted two free throws with 5:34 left.

    DuBois then scored the next nine Manhattan points, including a 3-point bank shot, to stake the Jaspers to a 66-61 lead with 1:52 left.

    Three free throws by Pearson, and two each by Guy Ngarndi and Patrick Bouli in the final minutes helped seal the victory.
