KENT, Ohio (AP) - Justin Sears scored 16 points and Javier Duren added 15 with eight rebounds and six assists as Yale defeated Illinois-Chicago 70-58 on Friday in the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic.

Yale shot 44.2 percent from the field and hit 9 of 20 3-point attempts. Armani Cotton had 11 points and Jack Montague chipped in 10 for the Bulldogs. Sears also had six rebounds and three blocks.

The Bulldogs (2-1) broke away in the first half with a 9-0 run sparked by Cotton’s 3-pointer and three-point play. Sears’ pair of jumpers along with Anthony Dallier’s 3-pointer made it 40-26 at halftime. Yale led by double digits the rest of the way.

Paris Burns, Jake Wiegand and Marc Brown each had nine points apiece for the Flames (1-2).

Yale will take on Southern Illinois in the next tournament game Saturday, while the Flames are set to play tournament-host Kent State afterwards.
