Nakiea Miller's second-half domination left him so exhausted that he had nothing in reserve to celebrate Iona's third NCAA Tournament berth in four years. As his Gaels' teammates jumped around the court, enjoying their second straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title, Miller collapsed from dizziness and had to be revived with smelling salts. Miller, the tournament's MVP, matched a career high with 24 points, leading Iona over Canisius, 74-67, last night in Buffalo, N.Y. "I was just so exhausted.

Billy Brieden's 16-yard touchdown pass to Dennis Calacione with less than three minutes to play rallied visiting Iona to a 26-20 victory over La Salle yesterday in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game at McCarthy Stadium. La Salle, which had rallied from a 20-6 deficit, drove to the Gaels' 10-yard line with 30 seconds to play before Eddie Albert's interception at the 9 ended the Explorers' hopes. La Salle, suffering its third straight loss, fell to 2-7 overall and 1-2 in the MAAC.

Seniors Leigh Washburn of Moorestown and Karen Shutz of Egg Harbor Township have made oral commitments to play NCAA Division I basketball next year. Washburn, a 6-foot-2 center and forward, will play at Princeton, while Shutz, a 5-5 point guard, will attend Iona. Both will sign letters of intent during the official early-signing period Nov. 8-15. "I chose Princeton because it was the best fit for me academically and basketball-wise," said Washburn, who averaged 16.3 points a game for the Quakers last season.

Lionel Simmons took a quick look at the stat sheet in the La Salle locker room last night. He was none too pleased about his own performance, but he let it pass. After all, the Explorers had just clinched their first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular-season title by defeating feisty Iona, 91-86, at the Mulcahy Center. They also had extended their winning streak to 11, their longest since the 1974-75 team of Joe Bryant and Bill Taylor. Plus, they had reached the 20-win plateau for the second consecutive season under coach Speedy Morris.

Who knows if it was the playing time that sparked the points or the points that sparked the playing time? Either way, Rekalin Sims returned as a scoring presence for No. 19 Kentucky last night. The reserve forward had 11 points, six more than his total in the previous three games, to lead the Wildcats to 73-67 victory over Iona in their annual home game at Freedom Hall in Louisville. "I definitely needed a game like I had, just because I've been on the down for the last few games," the 6-8 junior said.

If La Salle repeats as the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion, it won't be as easy as it was last season. The Explorers roared through the 1987-88 MAAC schedule like a tornado through a cornfield, racking up a 14-0 record, winning the conference tournament and claiming an NCAA bid. But things are expected to get back to normal in 1988-89, and historically, the race for the MAAC crown has been a dogfight. "The No. 8 team could beat the No. 1 team on any night, and it wouldn't be that much of an upset," said La Salle assistant coach Joe Mihalich.

First, coach Ted Fiore talked the refs out of a technical, then Willie Haynes squirmed through two defenders and hit a running one-hander with seven seconds left in overtime yesterday to give St. Peter's a 77-76 win over Iona in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference semifinal. In a game that had 11 second-half ties and no lead of more than five points, the Peacocks (22-7) were the recipients of a little luck and a little skill. To recap the final 26 seconds, Iona guard Glenn Grant hit a driving layup to put the Gaels up, 76-73 (their biggest lead of the game)

Only four of the original members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, which played its first season in 1981-82, remain. Two of them, Iona and St. Peter's, will play for the 10th MAAC championship tonight (ESPN, 7:30), just as they did in the first season. St. Peter's, which never has been to the NCAA Tournament, beat La Salle, 57-50, in the first semifinal last night. Iona sent almost all of 10,808 spectators in the Knickerbocker Arena home unhappy by beating Siena, 95-90, in overtime in the nightcap.

As if in slow motion, the 35-foot shot from Siena's Tom Huerter hung in the air, hit the front of the rim, the back of the rim and dropped through the net as the buzzer sounded to end regulation time, sending a Knickerbocker Arena crowd of 10,808 into ecstasy. But Iona, which led for all but 23 seconds of the second half - only to see Huerter's shot create an 81-81 tie and send last night's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament semifinal game into overtime - still had Sean Green on its side.

For a team whose starting lineup consisted of Worthy, Johnson, Green and Cooper, Iona didn't produce much showtime last night against Penn. But that hardly mattered, because the Gaels still had more than enough to beat the Quakers, 52-49, in the consolation game of the Cable Car Classic at Toso Pavilion. Instead of James Worthy, Magic Johnson, A. C. Green and Michael Cooper, the Gaels (4-6) featured Shawn Worthy, Joey Johnson, Sean Green and Kevin Cooper. It was Green and Johnson who did most of the damage, scoring 20 points each.

Injuries have caused a dual problem for Drexel this season. The Dragons haven't found any rhythm because of a lack of regular work together in practice. Another hangup, according to coach Bruiser Flint, is the mental toll the shorthanded situation has taken on his players. The Dragons dressed just nine players and finished with eight Sunday in an 81-62 loss to Iona at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. "We play like we don't practice - and we don't," Flint said. "I hate to say it, but it's true.

DAYTON, Ohio - Freshman Georges Niang matched a season high with 19 points, and Iowa State, showing it can do much more than just fire away from outside the three-point line, dismantled Notre Dame, 76-58, on Friday night in the NCAA tournament in Dayton, Ohio. The 10th-seeded Cyclones (23-11) will play No. 2 seed Ohio State on Sunday. The Buckeyes advanced with a 95-70 thrashing of Iona. Iowa State led the nation in three-pointers this season, but the Cyclones were just as effective from short range in ousting the Fighting Irish (25-10)

In less than a week, Carl Jones went from his worst performance of the season to his best. As a result, St. Joseph's outlasted fastbreaking Iona, 96-91, in a wild nonconference game at electric Hagan Arena on Friday night. Jones, a slithering 5-foot-11 senior guard from Garfield Heights, Ohio, scored a season-high 32 points and added five rebounds, four assists, and four steals as the Hawks (6-4) ended a two-game losing streak and registered their most points in regulation since 2008.

La Salle junior guard Tyrone Garland won't have many great memories of his first half at his new arena, but the second half was a different story. Playing only his second game for the Explorers after sitting out a year, the transfer from Virginia Tech scored 19 of his 26 points in the second half as La Salle defeated Iona, 88-74, in a run-and-gun nonconference game at Tom Gola Arena. La Salle is now 7-2 while Iona fell to 5-5. Garland had nine points in his debut, Saturday's 74-66 loss at Bucknell.

DAYTON, Ohio - T.J. Price's three-point play with 16 seconds left completed Western Kentucky's furious comeback last night for a 59-58 victory over Mississippi Valley State in an NCAA Tournament opener in front of a presidential audience. President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron had front-row seats to see the tournament open with a classic March comeback. The Hilltoppers (16-18) are the longest of longshots, the only squad in the 68-team field with a losing record.

Lamont Jones has played against Brigham Young twice before. But he only remembers one player - one no longer even with the Cougars. Jones, now a top player for Iona, got a close-up look at BYU phenom Jimmer Fredette in two meetings before transferring after his sophomore year at Arizona. But with Fredette now in the NBA, Jones and the Gaels (25-7) believe they can beat the Cougars (25-8) in a battle of No. 14 seeds on Tuesday night at the First Four at the University of Dayton.

For one more day, Drexel's exclusion in the NCAA tournament dominated conversation around water coolers, basketball offices, and anywhere else people have more than a passing interest in March Madness. Some, such as Kentucky coach John Calipari, didn't hide their anger. Calipari is a longtime close friend with Drexel coach Bruiser Flint. Flint was Calipari's assistant at the University of Massachusetts and then replaced him as head coach, and the two talk almost every day. "I don't know how Iona gets in instead of Drexel," Calipari said, referring to Drexel being left out of the 68-team NCAA field.
