Cornell and Columbia roll into the Upper Valley this weekend standing as the No. 1 and No. 3 teams in Ivy League women's basketball, respectively.

The Dartmouth women's basketball team (5-11, 1-2 Ivy) is a road team if there ever was one.

"Slippery slope" is perhaps the best phrase to describe the place where the Dartmouth women's basketball team finds itself right now.
It's that time again. Time to put up or shut up.

This would be the case for any other team but the Dartmouth women's basketball team, which has established itself over the past decade as one of the top teams in the Ivy League and New England.
Riding high after their 2-0 dismantling of 24th-ranked Fairfield University Wednesday, coach Jeff Cook and the Dartmouth Big Green (6-7-2, 1-4-1 Ivy) are shaking things up this weekend to try and garner their second Ivy win of the year when they head down to Philadelphia to take on Penn.

In keeping with the theme of the season, the Dartmouth men's soccer team (6-7-2, 1-4-1 Ivy) captured a victory in the form of a shutout. Of the Big Green's six wins, all have been via shutout, but this one had a different twist to it.
The Dartmouth Big Green (5-6-2, 1-3-1 Ivy) heads south this weekend to take on the Brown Bears in Providence. While the Bears are still in contention for the Ivy League title, they'll need some help, and Dartmouth isn't going to give it to them.
Some may say that Sunday's Ivy League soccer matchup (1:30 p.m., Chase Field) between the Dartmouth Big Green and the Cornell Big Red means nothing. They would say both teams are mired in the basement of the Ancient Eight with no chance of the postseason. Those people are wrong.

On paper it seems that Dartmouth's matchup with Harvard this Saturday should be a blowout.

However, you can bet that it won't be the match you see on paper.
Want a sure bet? Bet on the Dartmouth Big Green men's soccer team when they don't allow a goal. While this is almost a sure bet with any team in any sport, the men (4-6, 0-3 Ivy) seem to know how to rally behind their defensive unit when they are playing well and yesterday was no exception as the Big Green downed the Boston College Eagles, 1-0, in overtime on the wings of a Scott Darci '05 goal with just two minutes remaining.
Some may call it a slugfest, others a rivalry. Either way, when Dartmouth (3-5, 0-2 Ivy) and Columbia tangle in an Ivy League men's soccer match, it is always a war.
