Yale 70, Dartmouth 61

Austin Morgan scored 17 points, hitting all 12 of his free-throw

attempts, as Yale defeated Dartmouth 70-61 Friday night to sweep

the season series and keep the Big Green winless in the Ivy


The Bulldogs (17-6, 7-2), who have won five of their last six,

hit 30 of 33 from the line (90.9 percent) to offset 38.9 percent

shooting from the field (19 of 49).

foul shots.

Yale led 30-24 at the break and by as many as 15 in the second

half. The Big Green trimmed the deficit to 60-56 with 2:43 left,

but could get no closer.

Greg Mangano added 16 points for Yale.

Freshman Gabas Maldunas scored a career-high 23 points and

grabbed 11 rebounds for Dartmouth (4-21, 0-9), which has lost eight

in a row, including 62-52 to Yale on Jan. 28.
