Congratulations to Coach Tony Bozzella who got his 100th win as coach of the Iona Lady Gaels as Iona won its sixth straight game, a 64-53 win over Manhattan. The Lady Gaels took the lead 20-17 on a Diana Hubbard three pointer with 3:42 left in the first half and never trailed again. The Lady Gaels were up by as many as sixteen, 57-41 with 6:51 left.
Thazina Cook led the Gaels with a double double 15 points and 10 rebounds. Milica Paligoric had 13 points and Kristina Ford added 11 for the Lady Gaels. Iona is now 6-1 in the MAAC and 10-8 overall. The second place Lady Gaels trail only Marist, undefeated in the MAAC 7-0. The Lady Gaels also have a two game lead on Loyola and Siena, tied for third in the MAAC.
Iona plays another home game vs. Niagara tomorrow at 1pm, before playing four of their next five games on the road.
