    NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Mike Harris scored 13 points and sank four free throws in the final 40 seconds, and Iona won its first road game in more than a year, 52-50 over Delaware on Saturday.

    Reserve Justin Marshall added 12 points for the Gaels (2-25), who came in as the only team in Division I with just one victory, a home win over Rider on Feb. 3. Iona had lost 15 straight road games since beating Rider on Feb. 15, 2006.

    The Gaels entered the game ranked last in Division I with a 55.8 free-throw shooting percentage but hit 13 of 18 in the game, converting their final six attempts to clinch the win.

    Herb Courtney had 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Blue Hens (5-23), who set single-season records for total losses and home losses. Brian Johnson added 14 points, and Sam McMahon scored 10.

    Delaware trailed 24-18 at halftime but rallied to tie it at 39 with 8:38 left. The Blue Hens led 43-41 with 3:21 remaining, but a 3-pointer by Harris and a layup by Anthony Bruin gave Iona a three-point lead.

    Courtney made two free throws to cut Iona's advantage to one with 34 seconds left. Harris responded with two free throws, and Brian Johnson again cut the lead to one on a layup with 26 seconds left.

    DeShaune Griffin sank two free throws with 24 seconds left, and Johnson made one of two from the line with 11 seconds left. Harris sealed the win when he sank his final two free throws, making it 52-48 with 10 seconds remaining.
