KEEP AN EYE ON
Scouting Yale: The Bulldogs hope that rust is not a factor. They’ve won six straight but have played just once sice Dec. 7. The winning streak is the longest in a decade and Yale has shown plentyof reliency trailing three of the six victories at the half. Yale leads the Ivy League in scoring at 74.1 ppg. Greg Mangano needs one block to tie Chris Dudley’s all-time mark at Yale.
Scouting Wake Forest: The last time Yale played Wake Forest the Demon Deacons featured Chris Paul and were ranked No. 1 in the nation. This time Wake Forest has won three of its last four games and is ranked 100th in the RPI. Yale is 115th in the RPI. Both teams have lost at Seton Hall this season. Wake Forest has been outrebounded by five boards a game.
