STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK - Scott Machado, Men's Basketball

Junior Scott Machado recorded his 1,000 career point in the Iona College men's basketball team's 85-67 win over Manhattan in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Hynes Athletics Center. Machado became the ninth junior, 12th underclassman and 31st player in school history to reach the millennia mark with his jumper from the foul line to open the team's scoring in the second half.

With the win, the Gaels snapped a season-long four-game losing streak - all coming by four points or less - and improved to 8-0 in games decided by 10 or more points.

Iona completes its two-game homestand on Friday night when they host Siena at 7:00 pm. It's the second-game of a ESPNU televised doubleheader with the women's squad taking on Marist at 4:30 pm.
