Bronc Basketball Doubleheader at Iona Saturday

NEW ROCHELLE, NY-The Rider University men's and women's basketball teams will travel to snowy New Rochelle Saturday to take on the Gaels of Iona College in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference doubleheader.

Both games will be broadcast live on ESPN3.

The Rider men (13-12, 8-5 MAAC) have won their last two games, including a 72-69 win over first place Niagara on Thursday, and seven of their last 10 games.

Rider defeated Iona (14-10, 8-5 MAAC) in Lawrenceville on January 20.

The Gaels are 8-1 at home. Iona is coming off a double overtime loss to Marist on Thursday night. In that game Iona's Lamont Jones led all scorers with 37 points. The loss was the third in a row for the Gaels, who lost both of their games on the Western New York trip to Niagara and Canisius. Senior guard Lamont Jones is scoring 22.5 points per game, while junior guard Sean Armand and sophomore forward David Laury are combining for 31.5 points per game. Laury grabs 11.3 rebounds per game, which would be second best in the MAAC but since he has only played in 15 games he does not qualify.

The Rider women (11-11, 6-5 MAAC) have won four of their last five games, including a 55-44 win over Fairfield Thursday.

The Iona women (11-11, 6-5 MAAC) have lost three of their last four games, including a 60-43 loss to Marist on Thursday.

The Gaels are led by freshman forward Joy Adams and sophomore guard Damika Martinez, who combine for 29.4 points and 15 rebounds per game.

The Iona women are 5-3 at home.

The Rider men and Iona have met 50 times since the series began in 1949-50, with Rider winning 23, including eight of the last 15. Iona swept the two-game series last year. Rider and Iona split the series in 2010-11, with the away team winning both games, by four points in overtime at Rider and by two points at Iona. The Gales defeated Rider in the MAAC tournament semifinals in 2010-11.

The Rider women and Iona have met 34 times, with Rider winning 13, including two of the last four. Iona ended Rider's season last year in the MAAC tournament, defeating the Broncs 61-60 in overtime.

The Rider women are led by junior forward MyNeshia McKenzie and senior guard Sironda Chambers, who are combining for 27 points per game. McKenzie is grabbing a MAAC-best 9.8 rebounds per game. Senior center Caitlin Bopp is adding 9.0 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.

The Rider men are led by juniors Anthony Myles and Daniel Stewart and senior Jonathon Thompson, who are combining for 35.5 points and 15.4 rebounds per game.
