NEW YORK (AP) -- Mike Glover scored 19 points and Scott Machado had 18 points with nine assists to help Iona beat Manhattan 85-73 on Saturday night.

Lamont Jones finished with 18 points for the Gaels (19-5, 11-2 Metro Athletic Atlantic Conference), who have won four straight games and snapped Manhattan's eight-game winning streak.

Iona went into halftime with a 44-38 lead and used a strong second half to take control of the contest. The Gaels pushed their lead to 19 points - their largest of the game - when Sean Armand made three free throws with 5:43 left to play.

Manhattan (17-8, 10-3) pulled no closer than nine points the rest of the way.

George Beamon was the only Manhattan player to score in double figures with 26 points along with eight rebounds.

The Gaels shot 50.9 percent (28 of 55) from the field, holding Manhattan to 40.3 percent (27 of 67).
