The Gaels, who trailed by seven in the first half, opened the second with an 8-0 run to lead 55-49.

The Golden Griffins (10-7, 3-3) pulled ahead 58-57, but A.J. English and Armand hit back-to-back 3-pointers. After Reggie Groves' 3-pointer got Canisius within two, David Laury scored five straight points to spark an 8-0 Iona run.
