Posted Double-Doubles In Two Yale Victories
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Greg Mangano, who posted double-doubles in victories over Holy Cross and Baruch, was named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday. Mangano had 15 points and 14 rebounds against Holy Cross and followed that up with an 18-point, 11-rebound effort in the win over Baruch. He shared the honor with Columbia's Noruwa Agho.
In the 77-76 overtime victory over Holy Cross, Mangano scored 10 of his 15 points in the second half and overtime. The 14 rebounds were one shy of his career-high, and he added three blocks.
Mangano, an Orange, Conn., native, was even more efficient in the Bulldogs' easy victory over Baruch. In 21 minutes, he was 6-of-8 from the field and added three blocks, an assist and a steal.
The double-doubles were the fourth and fifth of the season for Mangano, who leads the Ivy League in rebounding (9.7 rpg.) and blocked shots (34). In addition, he is ninth in scoring (14.0 ppg.).
Yale opens Ivy League play at Brown on Saturday. Tipoff at the Pizzitola Center is slated for 2 p.m.
