Second Round Highlights: Duke survives late drama to get past Yale

03/19/2016

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Grayson Allen had 28 points and Brandon Ingram scored 25 to help No. 4-seed Duke hold off upset-minded Yale in NCAA second-round action from Dunkin’ Donuts Center.

Allen had five 3-pointers for the Blue Devils who advance to next week’s regional action in Anaheim. But it was not without some late drama.

Duke led 48-25 at intermission and by 27 only moments before. Yale streaked out of the halftime locker room with a 22-6 run, however, to climb within 54-47, erasing thoughts of a blowout.

Another 8-0 run by the Bulldogs brought Yale within 65-61, with 1:08 to play. A tip-in by Justin Sears, after a missed free throw, pulled Yale within 67-64 with 39 seconds left, but the Bulldogs couldn’t get closer.

Brandon Sherrod led the Bulldogs with 22 points. Sears and Anthony Dallier each added 12.

Scott Graham and Donny Marshall called the action on Westwood One Sports.
