The Yale men’s basketball team finished off its nonconference schedule in dominant fashion on Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs’ 102–46 victory over Mitchell was the largest margin of victory of the season and marked the sixth win in the Bulldogs’ last seven games as they enter Ivy League play.
Yale was able to utilize its full arsenal against its winless Division III opponent, with nine players scoring at least seven points and five players reaching double figures in the blowout win. Forwards Noah Yates ’18 and Jordan Bruner ’20 led the Bulldogs in scoring with 14 apiece off the bench, while guard Miye Oni ’20 filled up his stat sheet with 13 points, nine rebounds, five assists and three steals. The Eli defense was also the stingiest it has been all season, allowing just 20 second half points to the Mariners in Yale’s twentieth consecutive home victory.
Following the strong performance, head coach James Jones and the Bulldogs will now wipe the slate clean and focus on the upcoming Ivy League season and the prospect of a third consecutive Ancient Eight championship. Yale travels to Penn on Friday to take on the Quakers at 8 p.m.
