David Laury’s 21.0 points per game ranks second to A.J. English’s 21.1 for an Iona offense (13-6, 6-2 MAAC) that’s fifth in the country in scoring at 83.1 points per contest. Last week, the duo upped the ante, scoring 144 of Iona’s 228 points — a mark that sits just above 63 percent.
Laury was particularly impressive on Friday with a 25-point, 16-rebound performance against Niagara. English had a double-double of his own on Sunday against Canisius, scoring 19 and grabbing 12 boards.

When Tulane and UCF traded punches all the way to a 3OT contest, it was B.J. Taylor who delivered the last flurry of scoring in the third overtime — accounting for 11 of the Knights 12 points in the period. Taylor finished with 33 in the 103-100 win. UCF (9-8, 2-4 AAC) showed in Saturday’s loss to Memphis that it needs Taylor to get its offense working. He made only two field goals, but drained 13 of 15 shots from the free-throw line.
The 6-foot-7, 240-pound Justin Moss was a dominant force in Buffalo’s (12-4, 3-1 MAC) 77-68 win against Miami (Ohio) on Saturday. Moss had 15 rebounds to go with a career-high 31 points, hitting two-thirds of his shots from the floor going 10-for-15 from the field and 11-for-15 from the line. Moss was steady defensively in the Bulls win on Wednesday against Northern Illinois, picking up three steals and two blocks. Moss also scored 18 points in the 82-63 win.
