Struggling hoopsters hope to declaw Bears, Bulldogs

The Dartmouth men's basketball team heads down to Providence and New Haven for its final two showdowns of the season this weekend. This evening the Big Green (2-10, 9-16) plays the Bears of Brown University (6-6, 15-10), a team that features freshman standout point guard Jason Forte and Ivy League player-of-the-year candidate Earl Hunt. Saturday night's game against the Yale Bulldogs (9-3, 17-9) provides the Big Green ballers with an opportunity to play the spoiler in a tightly contested race for the Ivy title, as Yale vies with both Penn and Princeton for first-place honors on the final weekend of the regular season. Coming into tonight's match-up at the Pizzitola Center on Brown's campus, the Big Green carries the unfortunate burden of a four-game losing streak.

Albany comes into tonight's game fresh off a last-second victory over in-state rival Columbia on Tuesday evening.

Tough Climb Ahead for Inexperienced Big Green Hoopsters

Starting In N.Y.

After passing their only preseason test with a 68-54 exhibition win over St. Francis Xavier University last Friday night, the Dartmouth men's basketball team travels to western New York tonight for its season opener against Binghamton University. Co-captain Vedad Osmanovic '02 views Binghamton as a more formidable threat than what the team faced last week. "Binghamton is a stronger team, in my opinion, and they are hungry, so the competition will be better," Osmanovic said.

Crews Close Campaign at FOTC

After having their race postponed a week, the Dartmouth women's crews will join both the heavyweight and lightweight men at this weekend's Foot of the Charles regatta in Cambridge. The race traditionally marks the close of the fall racing season, and both the men and women hope to make the most of their last opportunity to get on the water before closing up shop and hitting the ergs for the winter. The Foot of the Charles, unlike the much larger Head of the Charles, features four-man boat races and only includes schools from the northeast region of the U.S.
