Iona Joins CIT

The Iona Gaels played their first home postseason game in 15 years and did not disappoint their fans and students by using strong outside shooting from junior Jermel Jenkins and 28 points generated off turnovers to defeat visiting Buffalo 78-63 in the quarterfinals of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament. 

Jenkins, the junior from Jersey City, made seven of 11 three-point attempts and 8-of-15 overall from the field to generate his career-best offensive performance. Leading the Bulls with a double-double was 6'6" freshman Javon McCrea from Newark, NY, who came off the bench to score 29 points on 13 of 16 shots made from the field while grabbing 10 rebounds.  

Iona will now play in the CIT Final Four against Eastern Tennessee on Saturday at 2 PM.
