Ivy League Office Previews Weekend Action

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Following Dartmouth and Harvard officially opening the 2010-11 edition of Ivy League men's basketball schedule, dubbed "The 14-Game Tournament," last weekend, four more teams start their Ivy schedules this Saturday.


Columbia will be relying on junior guard Noruwa Agho, the Ancient Eight's leading scorer at 16.4 ppg), to turn the momentum in the series as Cornell has won 14 of the last 16 meetings, including the last nine in a row. The Lions' last win over the Big Red came in a 58-57 last-second triumph on Jan. 21, 2006 in Ithaca, when Dragutin Kravic hit a buzzer beater for the win. The Big Red counters with junior guard Chris Wroblewski, who has taken over the role as top scoring threat averging 15.6 ppg (third in the Ivy League) and has dished at least six assists in seven of his last nine contests. The men's game, along with the Cornell-Columbia women's game which tips off at 4:30 p.m., and is a part of a "Pack the House Night" promotion at Levien Gym.
