NCAA Game Summary - Yale at Cornell
(Friday, February 10th)
Final Score: Cornell 85, Yale 84 (OT)
Ithaca, NY (Sports Network) - Johnathan Gray scored a game-high 29 points and knocked down a crucial foul shot in the final seconds of overtime as the Cornell Big Red secured a thrilling 85-84 win over the Yale Bulldogs in Ivy League action at Newman Arena.
Also scoring in double figures for Cornell (9-12, 4-3 Ivy) was Chris Wroblewski who tallied 18 points, adding 10 assists and seven rebounds as the team won for the third time in the last four outings.
The Bulldogs (15-6, 5-2) were paced by Austin Morgan who scored 22 points, leading four starters in double figures, as the team had a three-game win streak come to an end. Michael Grace accounted for 15 points, Greg Mangano 14 and Jeremiah Kreisberg 13 points and a game-high nine rebounds in the losing effort.
Yale shot the ball well from the field in the first half, hitting at a 51.9 percent clip in order to move out to a 14-point lead late in the period. However, the Bulldogs converted just 4-of-9 at the free-throw line and 2-of-9 behind the three-point line in the period, allowing Cornell to battle back and trail by just a single point at the break, 34-33.
In the second half Yale again shot the ball well from the floor (.550), but at the same time Cornell was hitting on 6-of-13 beyond the arc and it was one of those three-pointers by Gray with 12 seconds to play in regulation that put the Big Red ahead by two points at 71-69.
At the other end Morgan knotted the score at 71-71 on a layup with just seconds remaining, sending the meeting into overtime.
Cornell hit on 5-of-7 shots from the floor in the bonus period, but it was a late free throw by Gray that gave the hosts a four-point lead at 85-81 before Grace converted a three-pointer in the waning moments to leave the visitors with the one-point loss.
Yale cost itself a chance at the win by turning the ball over 15 times, miscues that the Big Red traded in for 23 points.
