Dwight, a senior guard for Iona, and Jenkins, a senior guard at St. Peter's (pictured), are cousins who played together under coach Nick Mariniello at Bloomfield (N.J.) Tech High School.
"He texted me and said, 'We'll see you in the championship," Dwight told the New York Post after Iona beat Rider, 83-59, in Sunday's semifinals. "It'll be a family feud, good to go against each other. One of us will be going to the NCAA Tournament. May the best man or best team win."
