Yale was 22-10 last season and is 41-24 over the last two seasons.

Justin Davis of Morse has committed to play at Cal State Bakersfield.

The 6-5 Davis was first-team All-Eastern League last year as a junior, averaging 18.8 points and 11.3 rebounds for the Tigers.

Cal State Bakersfield is an NCAA Division I program and a member of the Western Athletic Conference. The Roadrunners were 15-19 last season.

Davis also had offers from UC Davis and UC Riverside.

Both Monroe and Davis, who play summer club ball for Gamepoint, will sign letters of intent in November.
