We’re counting down the top 10 moments in each Ivy school’s history as part of our Ivy League at 60 retrospective. Dartmouth is next because once upon a time, Hanover went downtown early and often… in Chestnut Hill.
Look in the NCAA men’s basketball record book and you’ll find a Dartmouth entry for “Number of Different Players to Score a 3-Point Field Goal, One Team.”
That record was achieved on Nov. 30, 1993, when nine Dartmouth players notched at least one three-pointer. Baron Carlson’s three-pointer as time expired gave the Big Green the record, if not the win (Dartmouth lost, 94-73). The Big Green went just 10-16 that season, but they were record-setters nonetheless.
