Carla Berube’s minions continue to amaze.

The Yale Bulldogs arrived at Jadwin Gym Saturday hoping to stop what has become a runaway freight train of a basketball team.

No dice.

The Tigers turned in another near perfect game at both ends of the court, almost doubling up one of their Ivy League Tournament competitors, 74-36.

The Tigers (19-4, 11-0 Ivy) held the Bulldogs (14-10, 7-5) to single digits in the second and third quarters.

Princeton had four players in double figures: Abby Meyers and Kaitlyn Chen (14 each), Grace Stone (12 after not scoring last night) and Julia Cunningham (11). Chen deserves Player of the Game recognition after picking up the scoring when Meyers went to the bench with two fouls early. She is already a star in this league and has an unlimited future. Chen shot 5 of 10 from the field, adding a game-high five assists. Ellie Mitchell grabbed 13 rebounds.
Camilla Emsbo’s 11 points was high for the visitors.
The Tigers continue to get votes in the AP Top 25 list. Their total this week should climb even higher.
