- The team ended December with a 5-2 record, winning all but one home game they played. This season, the team is 6-1 at home and 2-5 away for an overall record of 9-7.

“Playing at home is great,” Foye said. “It’s where you’re comfortable, and we really get energized playing in front of our home crowd. They’re loyal and they’re really supportive of us, which just makes it easier and easier to play. The road games are tough. I think that playing at home makes you appreciate that and then at the same time, with students coming back this month and hopefully getting a good amount of them to our games will only be an even bigger boost going into Ivy League play.”

Heading into Ivy League play, Dartmouth will take on Harvard in back-to-back match ups on January 12 at home and January 26 in Cambridge before continuing on against their other Ivy League opponents. -

Great read. Good that the players were interviewed, to get their perspectives. You always want to hear that the team is bonding and roles are defined and accepted.

I think we play better i.e. looser at home, but we don't statistically have any home court advantage per Kenpom.
