Bronx native earns national recognition on basketball court

The Iona College basketball team may not be from the Bronx, but they still represented the borough through some of their star players.

The Gaels played the Fordham Rams Thursday at the Rose Hill Gym. The Gaels netted a win of 71-70 but not without a lot of help from Bronx native Steve Brutt Jr. Brutt scored more than 20 points and has been named PrestoSports/MBWA Player of the Week.

Brutt will play again December 7 against Rider University.
