WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Armani Cotton came off the bench to set a couple of career highs, scoring 20 points and grabbing 12 rebounds to lead Yale to a 61-54 nonconference victory over Holy Cross on Friday night.

The 6-foot-7 sophomore guard dunked to give the Bulldogs (5-10) a 39-38 lead with 13:27 remaining, and he added a layup after getting an offensive rebound 1 1/2 minutes later. He had 12 points and 10 rebounds in 11 second-half minutes.

Cotton came in averaging 3.9 points and 4.2 rebounds. His previous Yale bests were nine in each category.

The Crusaders (7-7) rallied for a 51-51 tie with 2:45 left, but baskets by Matt Townsend and Javier Duren and two free throws by Cotton boosted the lead back to six.

Dave Dudzinski scored 18 points and had nine rebounds and four blocked shots to pace Holy Cross. Justin Burrell added 17 points for the Crusaders.
