NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) Nico Clareth scored 20 points, Brett Bisping had 19 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, and Siena came back from 12 down in the second half to top Iona 81-78 on Saturday.
A.J. English had 34 points for Iona (14-10, 11-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) but missed a deep 3-point attempt as time expired, ending the Gaels' four-game winning streak.
Trailing 63-51 with 11:27 left, Siena (18-9, 11-5) used an 11-0 run to get within one and eventually led 77-70 on Clareth's long 2-pointer with 2:17 remaining.
But Iona's pressure defense forced three-straight Saints turnovers, and four free throws from A.J. English and an Ibn Muhammad layup made it a one-point game.
Bisping hit 1 of 2 at the free-throw line to make it 78-76 Saints with 22 seconds left. English attacked the rim on the ensuing trip down but was unable to convert on a potential game-tying layup.
