Mangano Earns Ivy League Player Of Week Honors – Again
Scored A Career-High 30 Points In Win Over Dartmouth
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Greg Mangano, who scored a career-high 30 points in Yale's 69-60 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week. In two games over the weekend, Mangano averaged 24.5 points and shot 60 percent from the field. It was the fourth time this season he has been recognized by the league. He shared this week's honor with Harvard's Keith Wright.
Against the Big Green, Mangano was 11-of-19 from the field and grabbed 11 rebounds to post his eighth double-double of the season. His 30 points were the most by a Yale player since Alex Zampier scored 31 against Harvard last February.
The night before, Mangano scored 19 points, grabbed four rebounds and had three blocks against Harvard, despite being limited to 24 minutes because of foul trouble. He was 7-of-11 from the field against the Crimson, including 3-for-4 from three-point range.
Mangano currently leads the league in rebounding (9.7 rpg.) and blocks (2.9 per game) and shares the lead in scoring (16.0 ppg.). His 64 blocks on the season are three shy of Chris Dudley's school record set in 1986-87.
The Bulldogs are back in action this weekend, hosting Princeton on Friday and Penn on Saturday. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
