Justin Sears scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Yale to a 76-64 win in overtime against Brown on Saturday.

Austin Morgan finished with 16 points for the Bulldogs (7-12, 1-1 Ivy League), who have won two of their last three games. It's a bounce-back win for Yale, which lost 65-51 to Brown this month.

Brown, which trailed by 11 points in the second half, forced overtime after Tucker Halpern made two free throws to tie the game at 58-all with 55 seconds remaining.

Yale continued to surge forward, holding Brown to only two points the rest of the way.
