This week, The Dartmouth spoke with 6’8” freshman forward Evan Boudreaux ’19 of the men’s basketball team. Boudreaux was a three star high school recruit who had offers from Iowa State University, Boston College and Bucknell University — among others — before committing to Dartmouth.
Playing in a nationally televised game for the second straight week, the football team managed to return to its winning ways a week removed from a heartbreaking loss to Harvard University. Despite committing an obscene amount of penalties for the second straight home game that contributed to a sluggish flow for most of the night, the No. 24 Big Green (7-1, 4-1 Ivy) ultimately prevailed over Cornell University (0-8, 0-5 Ivy) by a commanding score of 21-3.
Much like it did in the 2014 season, the loss to the Harvard Crimson last Friday seems to have extinguished Dartmouth’s Ivy League title aspirations. Playing on the biggest stage of the season — a nationally broadcast matchup between two undefeated squads that would leave the victor with the best shot at winning the conference — the Big Green suffered a demoralizing comeback loss after only trailing the Crimson for the final 38 seconds of the game.
There is not a single rugby player in this world that has not been yelled at by his ten. Not setting a proper platform for the kick? Trying to run a pick when the call is to get the ball out? Generally doing anything that is not helpful to what the flyhalf wants to do in that moment? Breathing in a space where your ten is upset? It can make you wonder how Dawit Workie ’17 ever ended up at flyhalf.
What’s good Dartmouth? The “Shoot For It” boys are back in action this week talking about the reigning National Basketball Association’s Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry. In addition to winning regular season MVP, Curry led his team to an NBA Championship, averaging almost 24 points per game, while dishing out more than seven assists and grabbing four rebounds per contest over the course of the season.
From Oct. 22 to Oct. 26, eight members of the men’s tennis team competed in the Intercollegiate Northeast Regional Championship hosted by Yale University. Dovydas Sakinis ’16 became the second Big Green singles player — and the first since 1992 — to capture the championship with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Columbia University freshman Victor Pham. Roko Glasnovic ’19 and Diego Pedraza ’17 came just short of winning the doubles title for Darmouth, losing to Columbia juniors Richard Pham and Shawn Hadavi in the final round in three sets, 6-2, 3-6 (10-8).
The No. 22 men’s soccer team continued its winning ways, defeating non-conference foe Northeastern University 2-0 at Burnham Field on Tuesday evening. The victory — the Big Green’s eighth in its last nine contests, including five straight victories at home — improves Dartmouth’s overall record to 10-4-1, while it maintains an undefeated 5-0 Ivy League record. Despite a first half in which Northeastern (3-12-2, 2-6-0 CAA) outshot Dartmouth 10 to two, the Big Green regrouped and came out firing in the second half with Amadu Kunateh ’19 and Eduvie Ikoba ’19 both netting goals to grab the two-goal victory.
The men’s and women’s cross country teams failed to produce the results they were hoping for at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships. Strong individual performances from Dana Giordano ’16, who placed second in the women’s race, and Brian Masterson ’16, who placed sixth in the men’s, were highlights of the teams’ performances at Van Cortlandt Park this past Friday.
After losing to Harvard University last week, the women’s volleyball team dropped another two matches against Princeton University (11-8, 6-4 Ivy) and the University of Pennsylvania (10-12, 4-6 Ivy) this past weekend. The second half of the season marked the end of a five-game win streak and the beginning of a three-game losing streak, during which the team has failed to win a single set. After the loss against Penn on Friday, Dartmouth (9-10, 6-4 Ivy) lost its first-place standing to Harvard, dipping down to second place in the Ivy League standings alongside Princeton and Yale University (11-8, 6-4 Ivy).
The men’s soccer team travelled to Cambridge, Massachusetts, this Saturday to take on Harvard University at Jones Field. After 98 scoreless minutes, Dartmouth (9-4-1, 5-0 Ivy) took the victory against the Crimson (7-6-2, 3-2 Ivy) when Amadu Kunateh ’19 headed in a corner kick from Justin Donawa ’19 to end the overtime period with a 1-0 win over the Crimson.
The men’s ice hockey team (0-2, 0-2 ECAC) dropped its two season-opening games against no. 11 Harvard University over the weekend, losing 7-0 at home on Saturday night and 5-2 at Harvard on Sunday night. Harvard (2-0, 2-0 ECAC) was powered primarily by a dynamite offense — shaping up to be one of the top packs of forwards in the NCAA — and managed to keep the Big Green offense in check by taking away its centering pass option and keeping Dartmouth off balance in the paint.
With both teams 3-0 in the Ivy League, the Big Green took on the Harvard Crimson Friday night in Cambridge for a match that likely determined the conference champion. Most people can agree that watching the game on TV or catching up with the highlights is not the same as being there in real-time. It’s a full experience that’s defined by the little things. To help you feel like you were there, Dartbeat has created a narration of that experience (complete with GIFs, of course).
Before the Game
After beginning practices in early October, the basketball team hosted an exhibition match against Keiser University on Oct. 29, and with a final score of 81-51, the Big Green dominated the game. In the demolition, four Dartmouth players scored in double figures, with Guilien Smith ’19 leading the way with 14 points on 5-for-11 shooting.
It wasn’t supposed to end this way.
Following a disappointing 4-2 defeat at the hands of St. Lawrence University on Friday night, the No. 10 women’s hockey team rallied from a three-goal deficit to tie No. 4 Clarkson University Saturday afternoon.
In the purest form of a heartbreaker if there ever could be, the No.22 Dartmouth football team lost 14-13 to No.15 Harvard University on Friday night after holding a lead for the first 59:22 of the game.
Three hundred and sixty three days ago, Dartmouth was in a situation very similar to the one it faces today. Playing against another in-conference undefeated team and its biggest rival, the Big Green faltered, however, and lost its grip on a potential Ivy League crown. One year later, the annual clash against Harvard University has arrived once again, though the stakes are even higher. In the most anticipated matchup of the conference season, the No. 22 Big Green (6-0, 3-0 Ivy) will seek to accomplish what it’s done only once in the last 18 years: defeat Harvard (6-0, 3-0 Ivy) — currently ranked 15th — and take the most pivotal step toward claiming its first Ivy title since 1996.
The men’s and women’s cross country teams will take on their Ivy League rivals this weekend in what is arguably the teams’ biggest meet of the year. All eight Ivy League cross country teams will be competing in the Ivy League Heptagonal Championship at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, New York.
LeBron James returned to the court for the first time since his loss in the National Basketball Association Finals last June. It was hard to know what to expect from James, but it was immediately apparent that he slimmed down in the off-season. The Cleveland Cavaliers lost a close one to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday by a score of 97-95, with James getting blocked by Pau Gasol in the closing seconds and failing to catch an inbound pass before time expired. There were several story lines from this game, especially with Derrick Rose back in action and Gasol’s success, but none are bigger than LeBron James. In this week’s “Shoot For It” column, we will be talking about James’ performance and what we expect from him this year.
The women’s tennis team hosted the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Northeast Regional Championship, wrapping up six days of play at the Boss Tennis Center this past Tuesday. Dartmouth posted solid results throughout the championship, highlighted by Taylor Ng ’17 and Kristina Mathis ’18 taking home the doubles title, the team’s first-ever title at the ITA regional competition.
