NEW YORK (AP) - Rhamel Brown scored 21 points, grabbed a career-best 17 rebounds and blocked seven shots to lead Manhattan to its fourth consecutive victory, 74-73 over Iona in two overtimes Friday night.
Emmy Andujar had 15 points for the Jaspers (10-15, 8-7 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference), including the deciding layup with 5 seconds left in the second overtime.
Andujar's two layups at the end of regulation sent the game to overtime after the Gaels (15-11, 9-6) took a 58-54 lead on Sean Armand's 3-pointer.
Iona took an early 11-4 lead, but Manhattan scored the next nine points and neither team led by more than six afterward in a game with 11 ties.
Lamont Jones scored 17 points, and Armand and David Laury had 16 each for Iona. Taaj Ridley added 12 points and 16 rebounds.
Brown now has 77 blocks this season, second in Manhattan history to his 84 last season.
