- “We got to close out games better, we’ve been doing it all year,” Oni said. “Adjustments will be made. From their side, they’re going to have a real busy week of practice. I’m sure their coach will be on them, so we got to be ready to come out with more energy and really get our energy and get the lead going earlier.”

The Elis were effective in shutting down Brown’s leading scorer, guard Desmond Cambridge, allowing him to put up a measly seven points on three for 18 shooting. Cambridge, whom guard Trey Phills ’19 defended for most of the game, suffered his worst offensive performance of the season last Saturday, though his 18.1 points per game still rank third in the conference. After the game, Jones called him “probably the best tough shot maker” he has seen in his life. In Friday’s match, the Bulldogs will prioritize minimizing Cambridge’s offensive impact once again. -

- Although Yale’s 41.4 rebounds a game and +6.2 rebounding margin lead the Ivy League — and the team’s 31.5 defensive rebounds per game ranks second in all of NCAA Division I men’s basketball — Jones expressed frustration with Brown’s success on the offensive boards.

“We want to rebound a little bit better,” Jones said. “I thought they got too many offensive rebounds, too many second-chance points. Jordan Bruner does a great job of changing shots, and those misses — we need to make sure we scoop them up. We didn’t do that, they got three or four put-backs, and if we take those away, it’s a different game for us.” -

- Still, playing the same opponent two weeks in a row poses a challenge for any team, as both players and coaches are familiar with the personnel and plays of their counterparts.

“It’s all about the minor details,” Phills said. “Coaches are going to nitpick us here and there, we’re going to watch a lot of film, and they’re going to be even more motivated after taking the loss, so just being mentally prepared and knowing it’s not going to be easier the second time, it’s going to be harder.”

With a win Friday, Jones would be the third Ivy League coach with more than 300 victories, joining Penn’s Fran Dunphy who has 310 and Princeton legend Pete Carril who has 514. -

Solid win for Yale, 79-71, for James Jones' 300th Ivy victory.

They were aggressive from the very start, taking advantage of the home court and Josh Howard's injury to control the inside. They shot 50% from two, assisted on 10 of 13 baskets and outrebounded Brown 26-18. When Brown improved its interior defense in the 2nd half, Yale still outrebounded them, 21-17, while going 6-13 from three. With all the fouls that went their way, they got to the line 20 times, hitting 15.

Good offensive production from the starting five and strong defensive effort from Bruner and Phills, who did another good job containing Cambridge. Atkinson also did well in a somewhat limited role tonight.

They are a talented group and are tough to beat, especially at home.

You of course meant his 300th win as Yale coach. More than one-hundred of those victories came against non-Ivy League competition.
That's no knock on Jones, who's had an outstanding two decade run in New Haven, with perhaps the best yet to come.

You are most certainly correct, AU. Jones has 300 total victories. Thanks for catching that.

In terms of 300+ Ivy victories, I believe the only two members are that group are Kathy Delaney-Smith at Harvard (347 and counting) and Pete Carril at Princeton (310).

Thank you, sir. Not that I want you to respond or confirm, but this Kathy Delaney-Smith must be older than Carril and Chet Forte, put together. And who could ever catch Carril in Ivy wins? James Jones and his brother combined won't do it- unless JJ stays in New Haven for the length of another career and his brother gets another job in the league- and somehow wins a few more damn games than he did in his first go around.
