A Date in Cornell Basketball History: The First Big Red NYC Roadtrip to Columbia

Continuing our series, A Date in Cornell Basketball History, Neither the Cornell Athletics Department nor the Columbia University Athletics Department have the official date in their respective record books of Cornell's first ever road trip to New York City to face Columbia. However, both schools concur the final result was a Columbia 17-6 win.

The above clipping from the November 5, 1902 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun confirms that Cornell's first ever visit to Columbia occurred on March 13, 1903. The two teams first met in Ithaca on January 16, 1903.
