What Happened Last Week: Dartmouth upset Harvard with a furious second-half comeback. Yale edged Brown on Javier Duren’s late jumper. And Cornell topped Columbia behind suffocating defense, leaving Yale alone atop the league at 2-0.
A week after Columbia went to Ithaca and defeated Cornell to open Ivy League play the Big Red came down to Morningside Heights and returned the favor. The Lions offense looks completely lost in a 57-47 loss that dropped Columbia to 1-1 on the young Ivy season.
What Happened Last Week: Yale opened Ivy League play with an impressive 80-62 victory at Brown.

What Happened Last Week: The Ivy League went 0-4 against major-conference competition, headlined by Columbia’s competitive loss to UConn and Harvard’s 56-46 defeat at Arizona State. But the Ancient Eight took care of everyone else, going 5-1 in its other games; Ivies have now won 10 of their last 13 games against mid-major opponents.
