NEWARK, Del. -- Miye Oni scored 16 points, Blake Reynolds added 15 and Yale cruised to a 76-66 win over Delaware on Monday night.

Delaware (4-3) tightened the gap in the second half, outscoring Yale 41-30 over the final 20 minutes but couldn't erase the double-digit deficit as Yale finished with 53 percent shooting from the field, including 9 of 17 from 3-point range, and got 23 assists on 29 buckets.

Anthony Mosley scored a season-high 23 points to lead Delaware, Ryan Allen added 16 points and Ryan Daly had 13.
