What Happened Last Week: Yale beat Columbia to become the last unbeaten team as Brandon Sherrod set an NCAA record. Princeton stayed a game back with two killer first halves. Home teams went 7-1, and even the loss was a near upset.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Cornell’s plan was pretty simple, really. After all, the Big Red’s biggest strength – pressure defense at a high tempo – coincided with Yale’s seemingly glaring weakness – turning the ball over at an alarming rate. It worked for a few minutes, Makai Mason’ offensive foul was Yale’s fifth turnover just […]
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.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – So here was the scene at Lee Amphitheather with four minutes left in the highly anticipated Princeton-Yale showdown Saturday. Brandon Sherrod, who already has a remarkable backstory involving taking a year off to travel the world singing, was 8-8 from field. Impressive enough, right? But it was Sherrod’s third straight perfect […]
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.
The stretch run of Friday night’s game at Lavietes Pavilion featured Cornell and Harvard’s stars doing what they do best. Matt Morgan pulled up for NBA-range three-pointers; Zena Edosomwan answered with ferocious dunks. But the biggest shot came from the least likely source: a three-pointer from Big Red center David Onourah.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Even though it’s 2016, some people (less than you’d think, but still) don’t quite grasp the concept of being efficient, whether it be on offense or defense. So Yale, being the smart Ivy Leaguers they are, have given you a nice lesson in their first three conference games. For instance, an […]
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.
ITHACA, N.Y. — Kyle Smith pointed a finger in the air with a wide grin on his face after he walked off the Newman Arena court following Columbia’s (13-6, 2-0 Ivy) 79-68 win over Cornell (7-9, 0-2). For the third in his six-year tenure, Smith has led the Lions to a 2-0 Ivy League start, […]
