Yale basketball sweeps Ivy honors

Greg Mangano was a big reason the Yale men's basketball team opened Ivy League play with an important road victory at Brown. Monday, he was rewarded by being named the league's player of week. Mangano scored 23 points and grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds in the Bulldogs' 69-64 victory.

Six of his points came at a very important point in the game. With Yale holding a slim 60-59 lead with five minutes remaining, Mangano made the Bulldogs' next three baskets to help Yale hold off the pesky Bears. He finished 11-of-17 from the field and added a pair of blocks.

Mangano, a junior, from Orange, leads the league in rebounding (10.2 rpg.) and blocked shots (36) and is fourth in scoring (14.6 ppg.). He has posted double-doubles in each of the last three games.

After leading the Yale University women's basketball team to victory over Brown in the Ivy League opener, freshman forward Janna Graf has earned recognition from the Ivy League for the third time in four weeks for her efforts.

Graf scored a career-high 26 points in Yale's 66-54 win over Brown on Friday. She also had four rebounds and a pair of assists in the victory. On Monday afternoon, the Ivy League announced that it named Graf as its Player of the Week and its Rookie of the Week for her stellar effort. It is the first Player of the Week honor of her career at Yale and her third Rookie of the Week honor in the last four weeks.
