NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Jordan Bruner dunked with 1:14 left to give Yale the cushion it needed to post a 59-55 win over the Great Danes of Albany Saturday.

It was Yale’s second home game and first since the November 17 opener, an overtime win over Lehigh.

Alex Copeland drilled a 3-pointer to tie the game midway through the second half and Anthony Dallier’s jumper gave the Bulldogs the lead for good, 46-44. Albany’s David Nichols scored to cut the Yale lead to one, 54-43, with under two minutes to play.

Bruner’s dunk made it 56-53, but Greg Stire’s layup with 51 seconds left cut the Yale lead to one, 56-55, before Trey Phillips hit the first of two free throws and Copeland followed with a pair to set the final margin.

Dallier and Copeland each finished with 15 points for Yale (3-4).

Nichols finished with 15 points for Albany (4-4).
