Brian Katz added a career-high 16 points off the bench and Jeremiah Kreisberg scored 11 for Yale, which led 39-26 at halftime.
Tammer Farid had 14 points to lead Baruch (8-6), while Lionel Hilaire added 11 points and Chris Beauchamp 10.
The Bulldogs took advantage of getting to the free-throw line more often than Baruch, making 19 of 25 compared to the Bearcats' 5 of 6.
