Yale rolls to 99-86 lead over Dartmouth
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Miye Oni scored a career-high 27 points, Alex Copeland added 23 more and Yale snapped a four-game skid with a 99-86 win over Dartmouth on Saturday night.
Anthony Dallier had 17 points and Blake Reynolds 15 for Yale, which is in third place in the Ivy League and looking to clinch a berth in next month’s four-team inaugural conference tournament.
The Bulldogs (15-10, 7-5) broke away late in the second half with a 12-0 run that included a 3-pointer from Oni to go up 89-79 with 2:29 to play. They protected the lead the rest of the way, outscoring Dartmouth 8-4 over the final two minutes to clinch it.
Earlier, Dartmouth (6-19, 3-9) edged into a 58-57 lead with Evan Boudreaux’s jumper with 15:45 left but Oni got a layup less than a minute later to put Yale back on top for good.
Boudreaux finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds for Dartmouth and Taylor Johnson had 15 points.
