Mangano honored

Mangano Ivy's League Player of the Week
Greg Mangano, who scored a career-high 30 points in Yale’s 69-60 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week. In two games over the weekend, Mangano averaged 24.5 points and shot 60 percent from the field. It was the fourth time this season he has been recognized by the league. He shared this week’s honor with Harvard’s Keith Wright.
Against the Big Green, Mangano was 11-of-19 from the field and grabbed 11 rebounds to post his eighth double-double of the season. His 30 points were the most by a Yale player since Alex Zampier scored 31 against Harvard last February.
The night before, Mangano scored 19 points, grabbed four rebounds and had three blocks against Harvard, despite being limited to 24 minutes because of foul trouble. He was 7-of-11 from the field against the Crimson, including 3-for-4 from three-point range.
Mangano currently leads the league in rebounding (9.7 rpg.) and blocks (2.9 per game) and shares the lead in scoring (16.0 ppg.). His 64 blocks on the season are three shy of Chris Dudley’s school record set in 1986-87.
Mangano is an Orange, Conn., native and is a graduate of Notre Dame-West Haven High School.
The Bulldogs are back in action this weekend, hosting Princeton on Friday and Penn on Saturday. Both games begin at 7 p.m.

Azotam Earns Second Rookie of the Week Award
Quinnipiac University men’s basketball freshman forward Ike Azotam was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week. Azotam posted career highs of 16 points and 13 rebounds in the Bobcats’ 59-54 victory against Sacred Heart Wednesday.
Azotam is now a two-time winner. He shot 7-for-10 from the floor and was 2-for-3 from the line, including a key free throw with 34 seconds to play that gave the Bobcats a two-point edge. Of his 13 boards, seven came on the offensive glass which is the seventh-highest single-game total in the league this season.
The double-double was Azotam’s second of the year and lifted his season averages to 5.1 ppg and 5.7 rpg. Azotam ranks second among all NEC freshman in rebounding and is 12th overall.

Yale's Graf top rookie again
Janna Graf led Yale to an Ivy League sweep of Harvard, then an unbeaten 5-0 in Ivy play, and Dartmouth, earning her fourth Rookie of the Week award of the 2010-11 season.
Graf was the catalyst in both wins, and she saved her best play for the second half, when it mattered most in both games. In the win over Harvard, Graf recorded 20-plus points for the third time this season. She scored 12 of her game-high 21 points in the second half, going 6-for-8 from the floor in that 20-minute span.
She also finished with a career-high seven assists, besting her previous high of two, recorded five times this season. In the win over Dartmouth, Graf scored 15 points, her ninth double-digit performance of the season. Again, she saved her best for the final 20 minutes, scoring 10 of her 15 points in the second half to help Yale pull away from Dartmouth. She scored seven of those points in the first 4:34 of
the half to help Yale open up a 13-point lead that effectively put the game out of reach.
