NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - Rickey McGill scored 19 points, including nine in a game-ending 25-11 run over the final four minutes as Iona rallied to beat Saint Peter’s 73-69 on Friday night.

The Peacocks (7-7, 1-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference), hoping to end a five-game losing streak to the Gaels (8-7, 2-1), led 58-48 after two Sam Idowu free throws before a jumper by McGill started a string of 14 straight Iona points. Schadrac Casimir’s 3-pointer followed by McGill’s steal and pass off the backboard to set up TK Edogi’s dunk made it 72-65 with 12 seconds left.

Casimir finished with five 3-pointers and 18 points and Edogi scored 12 for the Gaels, who made 12 3-pointers.

Idowu had four 3-pointers and 20 points to lead the Peacocks, who shot 51 percent but gave up 26 points off 20 turnovers.
