Happy winter everyone, it’s good to be back. Some quick hits from around the country: The Big Ten is a bloodbath, and I can easily see the conference sending more than 10 teams to the NCAA Tournament; the ACC might only send three teams to the tournament in a down year; and San Diego State University is the lone remaining undefeated team in college basketball — and it doesn’t seem like the Aztecs will lose any time soon. Some early bracket busters for March to watch for: Northern Iowa University, Brigham Young University and East Tennessee State University.
The women’s basketball team split games this weekend against Columbia University and Cornell University in two hard fought road battles. Despite falling to the Lions 73-63 on Friday, the Big Green ended its six-game losing skid on Saturday with a 67-65 win over the Big Red as Elle Louie ’21 nailed a game-winning jumper with 13 seconds to go.
For the first time in five years, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team (9-14, 2-6 Ivy) swept an Ivy League back-to-back weekend.
After appearing in the NCAA tournament for the first time in six years and securing a share of the Ivy League title last season, the women’s lacrosse team will head into the 2020 season ranked third in the conference and No. 22 in the nation. Under new head coach Alex Frank, the Big Green will look to build on last year’s title and finish deeper in the bracket.
The Big Green had a challenging weekend at home against Brown University and Yale University, getting down early in both games and falling short in its comeback attempts. After opening Ivy League play with a win against Harvard University, Dartmouth has now lost its last five conference games, including the last four at home, and eight of its last nine games overall.
Through this column, I’ve been fortunate enough to teach my faithful readers some life lessons. A few weeks ago, I went straight to my social psychology textbook and discussed the power of the situation. Last week, I gave my East Coast audience an introduction to California culture — and probably shocked any investment banker readers by proposing the notion of going to work in khaki shorts and polo shirts. I don’t need to check the records to know that my dad rocked such a combination Monday morning. Or he might have hit the gym in the morning to blow off steam and then gone straight to the office in workout clothes. Those are the only two possibilities.
At some point, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team is going to have to turn its bursts of success into wins.
The Dartmouth men’s and women’s squash teams, both ranked No. 9 in the nation, wrapped up their regular seasons this weekend and will be competing in the postseason at the end of the month. The men’s team, after a 7-2 loss at home against Yale University on Friday, stormed back against Brown University to earn a 6-3 win on Sunday. The No. 9 women’s team also lost to Yale on Friday 8-1, but came back two days later to beat Brown, 5-4.
The Dartmouth skiing teams headed up to Maine this past weekend to compete in the Colby Carnival. The teams improved on their two third-place finishes this season, beating Middlebury College by four points to take second. The University of Vermont won its third straight carnival with 899 points.
Dartmouth men’s and women’s tennis both have their sights set on reclaiming the Ivy League championship after two strong starts. With two wins at home this weekend, the men’s team jumped out to a dominant 6-0 record, which includes a pair of close 4-3 wins over Louisiana State University and the University of Alabama last weekend. The women’s team sits at 2-3 with losses to undefeated Boston College as well as the College of William & Mary and Old Dominion University after starting the season with two wins at the Dartmouth Invite.
It was a tough weekend on the road for the Big Green. Currently sitting at seventh in the Eastern College Athletic Conference standings after the weekend, Dartmouth fell 7-1 to sixth-place Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on Friday evening and ninth-place Union College 4-3 on Saturday.
The Big Green struggled to shoot at home on Friday and Saturday, allowing Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania to run away with scores of 66-34 and 66-33, respectively. Dartmouth made just 27 of 110 shots overall and shot seven of 39 from beyond the arc between the two losses.
Poor shooting by the Big Green played a role in the team’s sixth and seventh consecutive loss at Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania. Dartmouth lost to Princeton (9-8, 4-0 Ivy) on Friday by a score of 66-44. On Saturday night, the team lost to Penn (10-7, 2-2 Ivy) in a 54-46 effort.
Last weekend both Dartmouth swimming and diving teams defeated the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Tate Ramsden Invitational, their last home meet of the season. The men finished with a score of 187.5 to UMass’s 142.5, while the women won 189-136.
Dartmouth women’s basketball traveled to Cambridge, MA last weekend to play Harvard University but was unable to claim the victory, falling 64-49. Dartmouth beat Harvard in Hanover on Jan. 11 in the team’s Ivy League opener, but this loss brings it to 7-8 (1-1 Ivy League). The Big Green is now 3-8 out of its last 11 games against Harvard, and the loss extends Dartmouth’s road game losing streak to four games.
MANCHESTER — For a state engulfed with events dedicated toward the upcoming primary, New Hampshire hosting a professional bull riding tournament at the Southern New Hampshire University Arena last weekend was a dramatic change of pace. Despite a snow storm blanketing the local roads, dozens of bulls and riders — along with thousands of spectators — took part in the two-day Manchester Invitational, the first Professional Bull Riders, Inc. series in the city’s history.
