    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Lamont Jones scored 18 points as Iona outlasted Nevada Saturday, 90-84.

    In a Bracket Busters shootout, Iona (22-6) won its fourth straight. The Gaels, atop the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, got balanced scoring from Jones, Michael Glover (15 points), Scott Machado and Sean Armand (13 apiece) and a boost from Randy Dezouvre, who came off the bench to score 17 points.

    Machado, the point guard, hitting all 8 of his free throw attempts and had 15 of Iona's 23 assists.

    But the Gaels, up 47-46 at halftime, couldn't shake Nevada (22-5), which leads the Western Athletic Conference. Olek Czyz scored 28 points and Deonte Burton 21. Dario Hunt had a 15-point, 14-rebound double-double.

    Trailing 71-58 midway through the second half, Nevada whittled it to 82-77 with 4:04 left. But Dezouvre stuck a jumper, Machado a layup and two free throws. Jones' two foul shots with 28 seconds left clinched it.
