Lynn, Coleman lift NJIT to 78-71 win over Yale
Matt Townsend's layup with 1:30 to go pulled Yale, which led 38-33 at halftime, within 70-67 but Winfield Willis made four free throws and his teammates hit two of four to clinch the game. Yale got two free throws from Javier Duren but missed three 3-pointers until a meaningless layup for the final points.
Daquan Holiday added 12 points for NJIT (9-9), which has won four straight.
The Bulldogs have one more chance to get 11 wins, the most in school history before league play.
