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.

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.
