Ivy League Office, PRINCETON, N.J. -- The slate is slight for Ivy League men’s basketball with only six games on the schedule this week.
Only Dartmouth and Cornell enjoy games at home, both on Saturday, with the Big Green welcoming Elon and the Big Red hosting Albany. Princeton is the only Ivy team with two games this week, first making the short trip south to Lawrenceville, N.J., to take on Rider. The Tigers head north over the weekend to take on Northeastern in their fourth of seven-straight games away from home.
"Inside Ivy League Basketball" returns for its third episode on Thursday, Dec. 15. "Inside Ivy League Basketball," hosted by Dan Loney and Brian Seltzer, takes an in-depth look at all the news and notes surrounding Ivy men’s and women’s basketball on and off the courts during the 2011-12 season.
