Yale vs Cornell

Yale remains in tie atop Ivy, beats Cornell 82-65


  •  

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) Justin Sears scored 19 points and Jack Montague added a career-high 18 - on 5 of 7 3-point shooting - as Yale dispatched Cornell 82-65 on Friday night, stretching their win streak to seven games.

The win, even with leading scorer Javier Duren out with an ankle injury, keeps the Bulldogs (14-9, 8-1 Ivy League) in a tie for the Ivy lead with Harvard, an 83-63 winner over Penn.

The seven-game streak is Yale's longest since 2001-02. Yale shot 53 percent and Montague hit all five of the team's 12 3-point tries. Yale scored 25 points from the foul line on 34 attempts, thanks to 26 Cornell fouls.

Devin Cherry led Big Red (2-21, 1-8) with a career-high 29 points - including three 3-pointers. Cornell launched 30 3-point shots, making 10, but it wasn't enough to overcome Yale's 35-26 rebounding edge. Yale's bench also out-scored Cornell's 37-10.
