NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Javier Duren and Matt Townsend each scored 12 points, and all of the Yale players scored in an easy 104-39 win over Oberlin on Saturday.

The 65-point margin of victory by the Bulldogs (6-11) is the largest in school history, eclipsing the previous mark set when Yale defeated Lyndon 101-37 on Nov. 7, 2011.

Duren, who went 6 of 7 from the floor, also had six rebounds and five assists for the Bulldogs. Justin Sears and Greg Kelley finished with 10 points apiece.

Yale never trailed in the contest against Oberlin (4-10), a Division III team. The Bulldogs went on a 16-0 run that was capped by Jack Montague's layup to give them a 41-15 lead with 1:17 left in the first half.

Yale shot 69.1 percent (38-55) from the floor and made 13 3-pointers.

Geoff Simpson was the only Oberlin player to score in double figures with 14 points.
