Yale?s depth was once again on display in Tuesday?s 71-63 victory over Albany at the John J. Lee Amphitheater. Playing without leading scorer Miye Oni, who was under the weather, the Bulldogs got contributions from a number of sources to earn a victory in their final game before taking a break for final exams.
The Bulldogs close out the pre-exam portion of the schedule when they host Albany on Tuesday night. Tipoff at the John J. Lee Amphitheater is slated for 7 p.m. ESPN+ has the video with Evan Ellis and Frank Maturo ?80 on the call.
There is little doubt that Duke features one of the top first-year classes in all of college basketball. The talent was on full display against Yale on Saturday. Rookies RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson and Cam Reddish combined for 60 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists as the Blue Devils, ranked third in the nation, topped the Bulldogs 91-58 before a full house of 9,314 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
For the second straight Saturday, Yale will get a crack at an ACC opponent. The first went quite well. The Bulldogs knocked off Miami 77-73 in the Hoophall Invitational, earning themselves some national attention. They?ll get an opportunity to make an even bigger statement this Saturday when they travel to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face No. 3 Duke. Tip is slated for 5:30 p.m. and the game will air nationally on ESPN with Doug Sherman and Jordan Cornette on the call.
The wait for the home opener proved well worth it for the Bulldogs. Trey Phills and Miye Oni each scored 20 points to lead six in double figures as Yale knocked off Lehigh 97-87 at the John J. Lee Amphitheater.
