Purple Eagles win thriller over Iona


Green deliberately brought the ball up the floor, sized up his defender, the 5-9 Tavon Sledge, and rose up for a straightaway 3 that hit nothing but net.

Devon White, who had nine of his 10 rebounds in the second half, stole the inbounds pass and secured the win.

"We lost our fight for a little stretch there," Mihalich said. "So to get it back is what makes me as proud as almost anything that happened tonight. We could've died. We could've said we had a good run and these guys are pretty good, you know, but these guys just wouldn't give in."

"The will to win," Mason chimed in.

"That's right, Mase," said Mihalich. "That's what we've got."
