Nov. 19, 2007
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Dymond Simon scored 17 points and sparked a 34-2 run in the first half to help No. 14 Arizona State beat Yale 84-38 on Monday night.
The 5-foot-5 Simon also grabbed five rebounds, had three assists and led eight different scorers during the first-half spurt that began after Yale scored two early baskets.
Arizona State (2-1) led 43-15 at the half.
Jamie Van Horne led the Bulldogs with nine points.
Lindsey Williams added eight points for Yale (0-2), which opened the season with a 100-44 loss to No. 5 Stanford on Nov. 9.
The Bulldogs turned a pair of early Sun Devil turnovers into easy baskets to take a 4-0 lead in the first three minutes before Arizona State ran off eight straight points. Yale got another layup but then Simon, who suffered a knee ligament injury 10 months ago, hit a 3-pointer and a layup to begin a 26-0 run.
Yale missed 19 of its 24 first-half shots and were outrebounded 29-11 in the first 20 minutes.
