Women's basketball must sweep to keep Ivy hopes alive

The time is now. If the women's basketball team wants any share of the Ivy title now held solely by Harvard, the Big Green must win their next three games and hope that the Crimson fall apart down the homestretch. Now three games back behind Harvard (10-1 Ivy), Dartmouth (7-4 Ivy) shares the second place position with the Princeton Tigers (7-4 Ivy). So the Big Green will be shooting for all or nothing this weekend as they head down to Providence and New Haven to take on the Brown Bears and the Yale Bulldogs for the second time this season.

Women's hoops faces most decisive weekend of year: Penn, Princeton and Green are all two games behind Ivy leading and two time defending champion Harvard

It is the biggest weekend of the year for the women's basketball team as the Big Green look to break out from a three-way second-place tie in the Ivy League as they take on the Penn Quakers and the Princeton Tigers at Leede Arena tonight and Saturday. A Dartmouth sweep over the southern Ivies would be especially sweet considering Penn and Princeton share the second-place slot in the standings.
