Yale Men's Basketball: Strong Team With Strong Schedule To Match

Yale Men's Basketball: Strong Team With Strong Schedule To Match

Creighton, Wisconsin, TCU, Iona and Vermont, and on Tuesday night came the addition of Georgia Tech.

Who would put together a non-conference basketball schedule like that?

Yale — of the Ivy League — that's who.

"The schedule is kind of crazy, it's obviously maybe more difficult than we would actually want it to be, but it's out of necessity," coach James Jones said Wednesday. "We couldn't get any of the local games on our schedule this year. It made it really hard for us, so we had to go outside, but let that not be the story. We feel really good about this team and we want to challenge them."

Yale isn't exactly afraid to play anybody, anywhere....
