Domenico Santiago and Mack Bertram-Gregory had 11 points apiece to pace Mitchell (0-9 overall). Hasani Williams chipped in with 10 points while Alan Morgan handed out a game-high six assists.

Offensively, the Bulldogs shot 61.5 percent from the field, had assists on 28 of their 40 field goals and made 12 three-pointers. Defensively, Yale limited the Mariners to 32.3 percent from the field.
The Bulldogs also won the battle of the boards 45-33.
