NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) Tajuan Agee scored a season-high 24 points, E.J. Crawford added 18 and Iona held off Canisius 69-66 on Friday night.

Iona (5-9, 3-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) led by 22 points with 11 1/2 minutes left when the Golden Griffins (8-11, 3-5) went on a 19-0 run, sparked by eight points from Jordan Henderson and seven from Majesty Brandon to trail 59-56 with 3:15 to go.

A Henderson 3-pointer got Canisius within two with 1:22 left but Crawford drove for a basket and Agee sank four free throws over the final half-minute. Brandon scored with less than a second left for the final score.
