    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Alex Zampier scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half Friday as Yale defeated Brown, 70-62, in the Ivy League opener for both teams.

    Zampier hit 7 of 11 shots, most on off-balance jumpers, as the Bulldogs (6-9, 1-0) won their fourth consecutive game.

    Matt Mullery led Brown (6-9, 0-1) with a career-high 23 points but was only 1-for-5 from the free throw line in the last 6:53.

    Ross Morin added 14 points for Yale.

    Brown's Adrian Williams and Peter Sullivan scored 14 apiece.

    Brown built leads as large as 11 points early in the first half. Yale countered by playing more aggressive man-to-man defense which denied the Bears good shots or forced them into taking ill-advised shots.

    Zampier's off-balance jumper gave Yale its first lead, 38-37, early in the second half and then he scored eight points in the final 4:47.
