ITHACA, N.Y. (AP)—Matt Townsend scored 19 points to help Yale win back-to-back games for just the third time this season, beating Ivy League foe Cornell 79-70 Saturday night.

Morgan Austin added 15 points, Brandon Sherrod tallied 13 points and nine rebounds, and Greg Kelley chipped in 10 points, including a 3-pointer that gave Yale an early 7-3 lead.

The Bulldogs (12-17, 6-6) stretched that lead to 24-9 on a Sherrod jumper a little over 7 minutes later and Cornell never threatened from there.
