ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP)—Ike Azotam scored 21 points, Jamee Jackson and Zaid Hearst each added 17 and Quinnipiac survived a dominant performance by Lamont “Momo” Jones to beat Iona 98-92 in overtime in the Paradise Jam on Friday night.
Jones, who matched a career high for the Gaels (1-1) with 40 points, hit a 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 79. Hearst missed an 18-footer, sending the game to overtime.
But Quinnipiac (2-1) scored the first six points in the extra session and never again trailed.
Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore was an assistant for 13 years at UConn under former coach Jim Calhoun before taking over the Bobcats in 2007.
