It’s Thanksgiving, and our cups runneth over with sumptuous Ivy hoops results.
Last Monday, the Penn men’s team gobbled up a nationally ranked Villanova team at the Palestra. A day earlier, the Princeton women’s team visited Middle Tennessee State, the defending Conference USA champions, and pulled the rug on the Blue Raiders’ 49-game home court winning streak. Five days later, the Tigers came within a whisker of upsetting No. 3 UCLA at Pauley Pavilion.
Last Saturday, the Columbia men, picked to finish last in the Ivy League, toppled Temple, 78-73, in an upset that virtually no one even seemed to notice.
But wait, there’s more. The Brown women’s team, picked to finish sixth in the Ivy League this season, lowered the boom on Providence and Georgetown in back-to-back games. The Bears may not win the Ivy crown, but apparently they are contenders in the Big East.
