KEEP AN EYE ON
Scouting Yale: The Bulldogs rallied from 18 points down in the second half but dropped a 72-71 decision at Wake Forest on Thursday. They shot just 5-of-23 from 3-point range hindering their chances. Greg Mangano led the Bulldogs with 20 points and 12 rebounds and broke Chris Dudley’s all-time blocked shot mark at Yale with three more rejections giving the senior from Orange 174 for his career. The loss snapped a six-game winning streak.
Scouting Florida: The 10th-ranked Gators dropped a gut-wrenching 85-83 decision in double overtime at Rutgers on Thursday to snap a four-game winning streak. Florida features talented guards in Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker. Walker missed a chance to send Thursday's game into another overtime missing a shot at the buzzer. Erik Murphy is the son of Jay Murhpy who grew up in Meriden and played at Maloney before starring at Boston College and playing in the NBA
