Isaiah Morton's 3-pointer with 43 seconds remaining in the second overtime put the Red Foxes ahead, 101-100. Jay Bowie and Lewis, who each finished with 21 points, added two free throws apiece to protect the lead.
After Lamont Jones' jumper with 5 seconds left brought the Gaels to within 105-104, a turnover by Bowie gave the ball back to Iona for a final shot, but Sean Armand missed on a 3-point try with 3 seconds left.
