NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Javier Duren and Nick Victor each scored 16 points and all five starters reached double-figure scoring for Yale, which won its home opener Tuesday night with an 80-65 defeat of Sacred Heart.
Evan Kelly scored a game-high 22 points for Sacred Heart (0-4) and Leo Vincent added 14 and Chris Evans 13. The Pioneers had defeated Yale in four of their last five meetings.
Back-to-back 3-pointers by Kelly midway through the first half gave Sacred Heart brief one-point leads, but each time Yale's Sherrod answered with a basket - once converting a three-point play after a Kelly foul - and the Bulldogs walked away to lead by 13 at halftime. Yale outrebounded the Pioneers 40-28.
