Harvard 67, Yale 64


BOSTON (AP) - Wesley Saunders posted his first collegiate double-double with 15 points and a career-high 11 assists as Harvard held off Yale 67-64 Friday night to remain undefeated in Ivy League play.

Harvard (11-6, 3-0) led by 15 in the first half and 13 in the second before the Bulldogs (7-13, 1-2) closed the gap to three, at 63-60, on Armani Cotton's layup with 19 seconds left.

Steve Moundou-Missi hit two free throws a second later, then blocked Michael Grace's jump shot. Yale's Matt Townsend was fouled on the rebound, hitting two free throws.

After Siyani Chambers gave Harvard a cushion with two foul shots with 3 seconds remaining, Austin Morgan's last-second layup provided the final margin.

Laurent Rivard added 15 points, Moundou-Missi 12 and Chambers 11 for the Crimson, who shot 54.8 percent (23 of 42) and have won four of their past five games.

Cotton paced Yale with 14 points.
