NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - A.J. English drilled a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left to lift Iona over St. Peter’s 62-59 on Wednesday night.

The Gaels led by eight after a Mike Poole 3-pointer, but St. Peter’s responded with six straight points as a Chris Burke steal led to a Marvin Dominique layup with 35 seconds left.

After two free throws by English, Trevis Wyche hit a layup. Jamel Fields then stole the ball and sank a layup to tie it at 59 with 4 seconds left, setting up English’s game-winner.
