Columbia (6-3) defeated Hofstra (7-3) 82-77 in its signature win of non-conference season. Here are five thoughts following Saturday’s contest at Levien Gym.
What Happened Last Week: Nearly half of the Ivy League’s nine games came against major-conference foes, and most of those were interesting: Brown upset Providence, Columbia scared No. 1 Kentucky, Princeton did the same to California, and Yale lost at Florida. (More on those games below.) The Ancient Eight was 3-2 in its other games, […]
Tonight Columbia went to Rupp Arena and played the No. 1 team in the country — a team some hot takes even have beating the Philadelphia 76ers… And Kentucky didn’t take the lead until 13:18 remained in the game, but eventually won 56-46. It was a gutsy effort from an incredibly game Lions squad and […]
What Happened Last Week: December in the Ivy League doesn’t get much more eventful than this. Yale upset Connecticut for the league’s biggest regular-season win in a couple years; Harvard survived double overtime at Vermont despite a scoring controversy (more below); and the conference was a perfect 8-0 over the weekend. That offset a much gloomier beginning, in […]
Big Apple Buckets covered five games last night, but we couldn’t be everywhere on a busy Saturday that included 116 games Division I games. Here are some thoughts from a few of the other games involving local teams.

What Happened Last Week: Harvard earned the Ivy League’s biggest win so far this season, edging UMass in a 75-73 thriller. Yale fell short at Providence, but it won two other games to move to 6-2. Columbia and Penn extended streaks in opposite directions, while Princeton and Brown had mixed results in Thanksgiving weekend multi-team […]
Columbia began the 2014-15 as one of the “under the radar” teams, grouped in with Yale as a school that might be able to sneak up on three-time defending champ Harvard in the Ivy League. Then senior Alex Rosenberg went down with a season-ending injury (because of archaic Ivy redshirt rules, Rosenberg withdrew from school […]
What Happened Last Week: The top of the league held its own, as Yale, Columbia and Harvard went a combined 7-0. Cornell continued to exceed expectations, beating Colgate and taking Penn State and Drexel to the wire. But that was the extent of the good Ivy news, as the other four teams fell to a combined […]
After a last-second loss to Stony Brook to start the season Columbia welcomed Wagner to Levien Gymnasium on Tuesday night. The Lions were still without a number of key players due to injury and went almost 10.5 minutes in the second half without a field goal, but managed to pull out a 14-point victory over […]
