NEW HAVEN, Conn. – There was a time not long ago when the vaunted Yale offense was not so vaunted. In their last two games before Christmas break, the Bulldogs put up 0.94 and 0.89 points per possession in losses to Illinois and USC. Yeah, those are BCS schools, you say? Well, in the game […]
What Happened Last Week: The top three contenders looked the part: Columbia stayed perfect, thanks to an Alex Rosenberg buzzer-beater. Yale did the same, but not without a scare from Princeton. Cornell got a surprising road sweep, while Harvard crashed and burned.
For several seasons, Harvard has been the team that can’t lose close games. Whether it was overtime squeakers or playoff game-winners, the Crimson always seemed to come out on top, going 16-3 in Ivy games decided by five points or less from 2012-15. Columbia, meanwhile, was the league’s hard-luck team, going 5-17 in such games.
What Happened Last Week: Yale eviscerated Brown to reach 2-0 in Ivy League play. Columbia did the same with lights-out shooting at Cornell. Dartmouth toppled Harvard with a familiar comeback.

What Happened Last Week: Yale held off Brown and Columbia edged Cornell. Harvard and Dartmouth each won a couple games, while the P’s rested.
What Happened Last Week: Princeton pulled an 11-point rabbit out of its hat at Penn. Harvard’s seniors held off Dartmouth down the stretch. The Ivy League went 7-1 out of conference, but with only five D-1 games.
What Happened Last Week: The Ivy League lost the (quasi-official) #IVYvsAE Challenge 4-2, returning the (very imaginary) trophy after last year’s (hashtag-less) sweep. Princeton and Brown scared Miami and Rhode Island, but neither completed an upset.
Columbia came out shooting hot and got up by as many as 17, but Stony Brook stormed back with a 26-3 run to defeat the Lions and end their portion of non-conference play 9-4.
Columbia entered Saturday night with a high octane offense, set to challenge Stony Brook in what they hoped would become a shootout.
