    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Derek Needham scored 17 points, including a game-winning 3-pointer with 5 seconds left to lift Fairfield over Iona 66-64 Monday.

    Justin Jenkins added 12 points and Maurice Barrow chipped in 10 points for the Stags, who have won six of their last seven games after losing five straight.

    Fairfield (17-11, 8-7 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) trailed 61-54 with 3:48 remaining but outscored Iona 9-0 over the next 3 minutes to take a 63-61 lead.

    Lamont Jones converted a three-point play with 21 seconds showing to help Iona (15-12, 9-7) regain the lead but Needham's trey on the Stags' next possession sealed it.

    Fairfield dished out 17 assists, compared to eight for Iona.

    Jones finished with 29 points for Iona, which has lost five of its last six games by a combined 10 points. Sean Armand (14 points) hit two 3s and broke Iona's all-time single-season record of 96 by one.
