NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Lamont Jones scored more than 30 points for the second consecutive game and Iona defeated Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference-foe Rider 78-71 Saturday night.

Jones scored 32 after pouring in 37 in a double-overtime loss to Marist on Thursday. The senior hit 10 of 19 from the field and 11 of 13 at the floor for the Gales (15-10, 9-5), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Sean Armand added 24 points for Iona, including the 1,000th of his career. The junior knocked down 4 of 6 3-pointers and now has 92 treys for the season, four shy of Steve Burtt's school record.

Iona improved to 9-1 at home this year.

Jonathon Thompson scored a career-high 26 points as the Broncs (13-13, 8-6) had their two-game winning streak snapped.

Thompson pulled Rider within 68-67 with a layup with 5:25 left, but Iona responded with a 7-1 run.
