Late run carries Evansville to 66-56 win over Yale
EVANSVILLE 66, YALE 56
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- D.J. Balentine scored 16 points off the
bench, and Evansville closed the game on a 13-2 run to seal its
first victory of the season, 66-56 on Friday at the Coaches vs.
Balentine, a freshman, was 6 of 11 from the field. Jordan Jahr
added 12 points, and Ryan Sawvell and Lewis Jones had 10 apiece
for the Purple Aces (1-2).
Justin Sears had 15 points and Austin Morgan chipped in 13 for
the Bulldogs (0-3), who erased a 10-point first-half deficit and
led 54-53 with 7:25 to play. But two Balentine baskets,
sandwiched around two Jones free throws, put the Purple Aces
ahead to stay. Later, a Ned Cox 3-pointer made it 62-56 with
3:01 left, and Cox's two free throws in the final minute sealed
Evansville won despite being outrebounded 35-22. Yale committed
19 turnovers to Evansville's six.
