    Columbia 88, Yale 79 (2OT)

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Dragutin Kravic scored a career-high 35 points and hit two key 3-pointers in the second overtime to help Columbia outlast Yale 88-79 on Saturday night in the season finale for both teams.

    With the teams tied at 73 after the first overtime, Kravic opened the scoring in the second extra session with a 3-pointer, his seventh of the game, and added another in the final minute to put the game out of reach.

    Columbia (10-17, 6-8) won its final four home games to tie Cornell for fifth in the Ivy League under new coach Joe Jones after going 0-14 last season.

    Jones got a split of the first two meetings with his brother, Yale coach James Jones. They are the first two Ivy League coaching brothers to oppose each other since 1928.

    Yale (12-15, 7-7) never led in the second half but tied the game, 63-63, on Matt Minoff's 3-point play on a layup and free throw with 38.7 seconds left in regulation.

    Kravic also had a game-high 12 rebounds while Matt Preston scored 21 points for the Lions and Maurice Murphy had 13.

    Minoff led the Bulldogs with 22 points, Dominick Martin scored 16, Edwin Draughan 13 and Paul Vitelli 11.
