Second Half Run Propels Gaels Past Men's Basketball
Feb. 13, 2009
BALTIMORE - Iona used a 25-0 run that covered nearly 10 minutes of the second half to take command in a 77-65 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference victory Friday night at Reitz Arena in front of 1,222 and an ESPNU audience.
Loyola's sophomore guard Jamal Barney scored the first two points of the second half on a step-back jumper from the top of the perimeter, 21 seconds into the stanza, but the Gaels (12-14 overall, 7-8 MAAC) scored the next 25 points to go up 62-40 on a Milan Prodanovic 3-pointer with 11:39 remaining.
Alejo Rodriguez scored eight and Devon Clarke had seven during the stretch that covered 9:37 until Barney hit a 3-pointer with 9:59 left.
Clarke and Rodriguez finished with 15 and 14, respectively, to lead Iona.
Barney had 19 for Loyola (11-16, 6-9), and senior guard Marquis Sullivan added 13.
After Barney's opening jumper in the second half, Iona scored twice on layups and once on a Rodriguez dunk before Loyola called a 30-second timeout. While the Gaels did not score a field goal again for almost three minutes, they continued to pressure Loyola on the defensive end.
The Greyhounds finished with 19 turnovers, 11 in the second half.
Loyola led for much of the first half, going ahead by seven, 15-8, on a jumper by junior guard Brett Harvey six minutes in.
Iona rallied to tie the score at 21 on two Jermel Jenkins free throws with 6:33 on the clock before the break.
Loyola, however, went up by three, 31-28 with 3:36 left, as Harvey made a seven-foot jumper and hit the ensuing free throw after being fouled.
Iona tied the score at 33 on a Rashon Dwight three, but Barney answered with a three of his own off an assist from sophomore guard Brian Rudolph, putting Loyola up 36-33 with 1:56 left.
Dwight tied the game at 36 with 52 ticks left, but Rudolph hit two free throws 10 seconds later, and Loyola led 38-37 at the half.
The Greyhounds are back in action on Monday, February 16, 2009, when they host Canisius at 7 p.m. in Reitz Arena.
