Last Week in the Ivy League: Brown went 3-0, and Mike Martin is self-aware. Penn played a big game, but not as big as Patrick Steeves’ homecoming. Yale fell off its hot pace. Columbia lost a close game, but what else is new?
Columbia is 3-4 in its first seven games under Jim Engles. Considering the Lions are now in a stretch where they will play just three games in nearly four weeks, it gives us an excellent moment to step back and take stock of what has happened this season in Morningside Heights.
On the scatterplot of Division I head basketball coaches, Bryant’s Tim O’Shea slides toward the upper end of both the laid-back and positivity metrics, so it shouldn’t be that surprising that he was able to brush off Monday’s unfortunate mistake by freshman Ikenna Ndugba that contributes to a tough 91-90 loss at Brown Monday night.

Hofstra pulled out a two-point victory over Columbia on Tuesday in Morningside Heights. The game was a clash between two retooling New York City area teams and the Pride had a little more depth and grit in the victory.
Last Week in the Ivy League: After losing several close games Saturday, the Ancient Eight are a combined 11-24 in D-I action. Though Nate Hickman had lots of heroics, Columbia got 88-83’d again. Harvard is reeling, Penn and Columbia took bad losses, and even Yale went winless.
Tommy Amaker has taken Harvard – a program where basketball success was not only non-existent, but largely unfathomable – to four NCAA Tournaments, actually winning games in two, over the last six seasons. Prior to last season, he had led the Crimson to six straight 20-win seasons, five consecutive Ivy League titles, and a 59-15 […]
Justin Robinson scored 19 points in 21 minutes and Monmouth coasted past Cornell last night. Here’s the video recap from Tony Graham.
Jim Engles clearly didn’t want to leave NJIT after a remarkable eight-year run in Newark that began with a 1-30 season and ended with back-to-back 20-win campaigns as well as a conference (Atlantic Sun) to finally call home.
This first real snowfall hasn’t come yet, so it might have been a bit premature to sound the alarm, but there was Princeton coach Mitch Henderson in the postgame press conference after Sunday afternoon’s 76-67 loss at Lehigh sounding like a team on a 10-game losing streak in mid-February:
Last Week in the Ivy League: Princeton fell to a disappointing 0-2. Brian Earl earned his first win as head coach, while Dave McLaughlin is still waiting. Penn got a name change. Yale pulled off the weekend’s biggest upset, though not in basketball.
