Columbia built an 12-point halftime lead and coasted to an 81-64 victory over Army at Levien Gymnasium on Wednesday night. The win brings the Lions above .500 overall at 5-4 on the season. They’ll be put to the test though on Saturday at Bucknell.
Kyle Smith and Alex Rosenberg walked down the halls of Levien Lobby smiling and laughing. The Lions had just dispatched of American 61-47, and their mood was lighthearted following the win.
Coming into the season the question about the Ivy League was: What team is the second best behind Harvard? There were arguments to be made for almost every team in the league. Have we come any closer to settling that debate two and a half weeks in? Nope. Still, let’s take a look at a […]
Maybe I was wrong about Bryant. Coming into the season Ryan Peters and I picked the Bulldogs fifth in the NEC. I even said that I thought they’d finish 9-7 in the conference. There were questions at point guard concerns about if the defense would hold up against quality competition.

What a difference a season makes. Just 12 months ago, Columbia was at the doorstep of contention. On the backs of seniors Brian Barbour and Mark Cisco, the Lions entered the season as the Ivy League’s preseason No. 3 selection. They were a “sexy” pick to win in a conference that lacked a dominant preseason […]
While the Ivy League graduated a number of talented players this past offseason, there’s still a bunch of talent in the league and it is augmented by the return of Kyle Casey and Brandyn Curry at Harvard. Figuring out where they fit on the Harvard roster, let alone the all-conference pecking order is quite the […]
Two very smart people have released preseason college basketball ratings that span the entire breadth of Division I. Even though Ken Pomeroy and Dan Hanner use different methods to make their predictions the results were quite similar last season. Still, there are some outliers. Here are a few of the more interesting one.
