Yale is an experinced basketball team that gets after it defensively and can shoot the rock. Remember, the Bulldogs not only beat UConn on the road last season, but they just lost to a solid SMU team by one bucket on the road. Duke has more talent but isn't blowing teams out just yet. I'll gladly take the points here.
