Since 1959, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team has managed to win a mere total of eight games combined in its annual away game trips to the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University. Last weekend’s trek down the East Coast brought no change to that pattern, as the Big Green (7-13, 1-5) let another game get away against Penn (8-11, 2-3) 71-64, and fell behind early against Princeton (14-5, 4-1) to lose 83-70, wrapping up a mid-conference four-game losing streak that leaves the team tied for last place in the Ivy League.
The Big Green ski team continued its hot streak, beating out their host University of Vermont to capture a win at the two-weekend UVM Carnival event.

The team, held from a first place finish in carnival season over the past three years, has now netted back to back first place finishes in their last two carnivals.

The boys at Riding the Pine have already started their countdown to 2017. The parties are over. The confetti has been swept up off the street. A third Thai restaurant has opened in Hanover, giving the home of the College on the Hill the highest Thai restaurant to person ratio outside of Bangkok. You can lie on your back, fall asleep and snore so loudly you shake the walls in “Meditation and Relaxation” once a year and get a free pass. Now that Henry’s fallen asleep a second time in as many classes, he’ll have to start searching for more creative ways to get his P.E. credit.
The “Hack-a-Shaq” has become a widely employed strategy in basketball. It involves identifying a member of the opposing team with a weak free throw percentage and purposefully fouling that player to send them to the free throw line. The ultimate hope is that the fouled player will miss the free throw and possession will go to the team that originally committed the foul.

Although I know next to nothing about hockey, I was sent on assignment by my editors to liveblog my experience at the Dartmouth Men’s Hockey game against Quinnipiac last Friday. I was to give a "fan’s-eye perspective" of what was going on (I am using a very loose definition of “fan”). Over the course of two and half hours there was cheering, singing, booing and cursing. Basically, how all sporting events should be. Here’s a minute-by-minute rundown of the major goings-on at Thompson Arena's student section:
The women’s basketball team battled it out this weekend on the road, reaching overtime in both of its road games.

The No. 1 Quinnipiac University Bobcats and unranked Princeton University Tigers trekked north to Hanover this weekend to face off with the Dartmouth men’s ice hockey team, in the receiving votes category, bringing with them two completely different stresses. The first brought with it the challenge of simply being the best team around. The second brought with it the pressure of performing in front of the over 4,000 people that turned out to take part in Dartmouth’s annual tradition of assaulting the visiting Tigers (3-9-2 overall, 5-14-2 ECAC) with tennis balls following the Big Green’s (11-9-1 overall, 8-6-0 ECAC) inaugural goal. Dartmouth split the weekend, pulling ahead of the current national powerhouse 5-2 before allowing four unanswered goals and an empty netter to put them on the wrong side of a comeback, dropping the contest to the Bobcats (20-1-5 overall, 11-0-3 ECAC) 7-5. The Big Green returned to Thompson Arena to shutout the Tigers 2-0 on Saturday.

Fresh off of a three-game win streak that revitalized optimism for the season, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team collapsed back into the doldrums during this past weekend of action.
