SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)--Robbie Hummel made a 3-pointer with 20 seconds remaining to give Purdue a 91-90 victory over Iona on Wednesday in the 5-Hour Energy Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Iona (0-1) took a 90-88 lead with 33 seconds on a foul-line jumper by Lamont Jones. But Hummel answered with his fourth 3-pointer, giving him a game-high 24 points.

Iona's Lamont Jones tried to drive to the basket in the final seconds, but lost the ball after he was surrounded by three Purdue defenders.

Purdue's Ryne Smith was fouled and missed both his free-throw attempts, but Iona failed to connect on a half-court shot at the buzzer.

Lewis Jackson scored 17 points and Smith had 15 on 5-of-6 shooting from 3-point range for Purdue (3-0).

For Iona, Lamont Jones scored 17 points, Taaj Ridley had 16 points and 12 rebounds, Scott Machado had 14 points and 11 assists and Mike Glove added 13 points and 12 rebounds.
