NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP)—Ross Morin scored 17 points and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds to lead Yale over Hartford 71-63 on Saturday.
Yale rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit. The Bulldogs (5-9) got 14 points from Travis Pinick and Alex Zampier. Pinick also grabbed nine rebounds and led all players with six assists.
Hartford (5-11) got a game-high 24 points from guard Jaret von Rosenberg and 14 points from Andres Torres. The Hawks announced Thursday that they will play the rest of the season without leading scorer Joe Zeglinski, who needs season-ending ankle surgery.
Hartford used a 13-3 run midway through the first half to open up a 30-22 lead, and led 38-29 at the intermission. But Yale tied the game early in the second half and finally took the lead for good on a pair of free throws by Pinick with 5:51 to play.
