Yale-Dartmouth recap

Bulldogs move to 6-5 in Ivy League

Cromwell freshman Isaiah Salafia had his best game as a collegian nailing a big 3-pointer in the extra session.

Yale needed overtime to defeat Dartmouth 79-75 on Friday night. With rival Harvard on tap Saturday, here's coach James Jones thoughts on the game:

On playing Harvard
"You've got the energy to go out and play after you get a win. Thye've got to get on a bus and drive over here so we're in good shape."

On the play of Porter Braswell:
"He's a bull. He made some good decisions down the stretch. Even the one, the last play in regulation when he tried to give Austin Morgan the shot. He's strong and he was able to finish.
"This is the best he's played in his career. He also made a big point of making others better. He had four assists. That's been really nice to see."

Inside the box score:
Greg Mangano had seven more blocks in Friday's game. He is adding to Yale single-season record with every block he gets. Mangano is up to 78 blocks for the season and is 12th in the nation in the department.

Looking ahead:
Yale hosts Harvard Saturday night at 6 p.m. It is the final home game for seniors Porter Braswell, Raffi Mantilla and Alfonso Costa.
It's also a huge game for the Crimson who lead the Ivy League by a half game.
