Another Ivy League Season to Begin for the Big Red

Above, a 1999 Cornell-Columbia game program. With Cornell's return visit to Columbia on Saturday, the Big Red unofficially embarks on its 110th year of Ivy League basketball membership. While the present-day version of the Ivy League was formalized for men's basketball in the 1954-1955 season, the League has its origins in the Eastern Intercollegiate Basketball League (EIBL) with the rivalries dating back to the 1901-1902 season.

Columbia captured an impressive 14 league titles between 1901-1951, but the Lions have only won 2 championships since.

Below the past champions of the Ivy League and the EIBL...
