ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Justin Robinson scored 16 points as No. 4 seed Monmouth (NJ) beat No. 5 seed Canisius 60-54 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament quarterfinals on Saturday.

Deon Jones and Andrew Nicholas added 11 points apiece for the Hawks (18-14) who advance to play No. 1 Iona in the semifinals on Sunday.

A Jeremiah Williams layup early in the second half helped put Canisius up 39-34 with 13:29 to play.
