ALL FOOLS’ DAY: Dartmouth raises fourth-place banner

The Dartmouth basketball team on Tuesday raised a banner at Leede Arena to honor its CIT berth this season, the program’s first postseason appearance since 1959.

The banner read, “Fourth Place”.

Dartmouth then raised a 2014-15 Ivy League championship banner honoring Harvard next to the fourth-place banner.

“We made this happen,” Dartmouth forward Gabas Maldunas said.

Maldunas then told reporters a banner honoring him would be raised at Lavietes Pavilion next week. Maldunas said the banner will hang next to Harvard’s own 2014-15 Ivy championship banner and read, “Thank you, Gabas.”

“You’re welcome,” Maldunas told reporters about the scoop, which was later confirmed by Harvard athletic director Bob Scalise.
