Iona literally couldn't miss from the beyond the arc Saturday afternoon at the Hynes Athletic Center.

The Gael hit 15 3-pointers, and shot 62.5 percent from the floor in a 98-75 win over Canisius.

The loss snaps the Griffs seven game winning streak, their longest since the 1998-1999 season.

Canisius raced out a 13-2 lead, but it was the Gaels' hot shooting that allowed them to rally and build a 53-40 halftime lead.

Niagara Falls native Jermaine Crumpton led the Griffs with 21 points and Kassius Robertson chipped in with 15, as the Griffs fall to 10-6 and 3-2 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

The Griffs return to action Tuesday when they travel to Fairport.
