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.
