Ivy League basketball roundup | Nov. 21
What is the rest of the Ivy League up to in men's hoops so far? We take a look at how each Ancient Eight squad started out the week.
The Crimson easily dispatched Florida Atlantic on Thursday night despite a miserable shooting night from Siyani Chambers (two points). Wesley Saunders led the way with 19 as Harvard won by a score of 71-49, easily overcoming the disappointing Holy Cross result from last week.
Yale absolutely destroyed Newbury on Monday, holding the Nighthawks to just 51 points on 27 percent shooting en route to a 97-51 victory. Jack Montague and Sam Downey each had 18 points in a game in which Yale was able to get its starters out early.
Columbia started out strong against Wagner on Tuesday night and never looked back, earning a 70-56 win in the Big Apple. Kyle Castlin had 18 points, and the Lions shot 87 percent as a team from the stripe.
Alex Mitola had 16 for the Big Green, but it wasn't enough, as Dartmouth dropped a close game at Hartford, losing 53-48 on Wednesday.
The Tigers got 19 points from Spencer Weisz and 17 from Hans Brace, but couldn't hang with Lafayette in the second half, scoring just 22 points after the intermission on their way to an 83-66 loss.
Cornell got itself a nice 58-52 win against Colgate on Tuesday behind 21 points from Devin Cherry, but were run off the court by South Carolina, losing 69-45 in Charleston on Thursday.
Cedric Kuakumensah struggled on Monday, as the Bears lost to Northwestern at home, 69-56. He played very well on Wednesday (20 points), as did Leland King (25), but Brown was defeated once again, falling 80-65 on the road to Holy Cross.
