Not only is he making an impact on the field, but Yale’s Ben Reeves is trying to make one off of it.

“He wants to be the best student he can be, the best athlete he can be, and you never have any fear that he’s going to be short of those goals,” said head coach Andy Shay.

Reeves spent last summer at the University of Rochester doing cancer research. It made for some long days.

“In the summer it’s about 10 or 11 hours a day,” he said.

And after some difficult courses, Reeves makes it difficult on his opponents.

“He’s one of those types of guys,” Shay said. “I’ve coached one or two guys like him.”

Some more highlights from yesterday’s games.

Speaking of the Friars, they were hyped up after the win.
