Iona's Tre Bowman added a career-high 24 points.
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.
Harold Washington scored a season-high 26 and Billy Baron had 20 points and 11 assists for the Golden Griffins, who have lost four of five.
