Over the course of the meet, the Big Green posted nine top-five finishes, highlighted by three top-three results.

Men’s basketball

After Dartmouth opened up Ivy League play with an eight point loss at Cornell University last weekend, the Big Green bounced back at home against the Brown University Bears this past Saturday to end an eight-game losing streak. 

Dartmouth struggled in the early going, giving up a 10-0 run going into the first media break. The Big Green trailed the Bears until the final possession of the half, when Garrison Wade ’22 nailed a corner three to put the Big Green up one at halftime. Dartmouth’s defense held true throughout the second half; the Big Green gave up just 46 points on Saturday, the fewest Brown has scored in a game all season. Ryan Cornish ’25 led the Big Green with 14 points and Dame Adelekun ’23 broke through off the bench with a double-double performance. 

This marked Dartmouth’s first win since Nov. 28. The team will look to carry this momentum into its game against Penn on Saturday. 

Women’s hockey

The Dartmouth women’s hockey team returned to play this past weekend for some ECAC action at Cornell and No. 8 Colgate University. After falling to both teams, the Big Green sit at 8-10 on the season and 2-9 in ECAC play.

The Big Green dropped its Saturday matchup in Ithaca, suffering a 5-0 shutout. On Sunday, the Big Green fell 4-2 to a dominant Colgate team. Defender Lotti Odnoga ’22 and forward Tiffany Hill ’24 tallied Dartmouth’s two scores. Despite the losing result, goalkeeper Hannah Humphreys ’23 had a stellar performance, posting 28 saves Sunday afternoon. 

The Big Green will return to the ice next weekend in Hanover as they take on Yale on Friday and Brown on Saturday.
