The Weekend Roundup: Week 7
Big Green basketball saw yet more rough losses, track and field competed at Yale and Boston University, and men’s hockey took down Yale in this week’s roundup.
On Feb. 8, Dartmouth women’s basketball suffered a 55-38 loss at the hands of Brown University in Providence, RI. Allie Harland ’23 led the way for Dartmouth with 14 points, draining four of five 3-point attempts. Dartmouth trailed consistently in the first half, going into the break down 36-20. In the second half, Dartmouth played a bit better, matching Brown basket for basket in the early third and winning the fourth quarter. However, it was not enough to close the early lead the Bears had made for themselves, and the Big Green ended up losing by 17.
On Saturday, Dartmouth fell to Princeton University — undefeated in the Ivy League — at home 70-48. Dartmouth’s record now stands at 2-20, 0-9 (Ivy League).
The game started with a basket from Dartmouth’s Jimena Abejon ’22, but Princeton quickly responded with eight straight points. Tori Page ’25, who scored 16 points on Saturday, had two early threes to keep Dartmouth in the game. In the second quarter, the Big Green went on a run of their own, scoring nine straight points to tie the score at 19-19. The Tigers fought back, however, and by the end of half were back out in front 29-21. Princeton owned the third quarter, scoring 10 unanswered points within the first three minutes of the quarter. The Big Green started strong in the fourth, with 5 early points from Mia Curtis ’24. But despite winning the quarter 19-15, Dartmouth did not have enough in the tank to overcome Princeton’s hefty lead.
Next weekend, Dartmouth will take on Cornell University and Columbia University on the road.
Dartmouth men’s basketball was trampled by Princeton University, losing 85-40 in the team’s worst conference loss in 55 years. With the loss, the Big Green’s record slides to 5-15, 2-7 (Ivy). Aaryn Rai ’21 put up 12 points for Dartmouth, but it was not enough to combat Princeton’s domination. The Tiger’s defense suffocated the Dartmouth offense, which shot just 23% from the field and made only one of its 20 attempts from 3-point land; In contrast, Princeton went 12 for 26 from behind the arc. Once Princeton’s lead became insurmountable in the second half, both teams pulled their starters.
