Princeton has another gear on defense which turned the game around last night. H scored 30 in first half, 17 in second. Chen took the game over down the stretch, along with Ellie Mitchell. Harvard should be given a real shot to win ILT. Lots of talent there and Moore is a solid skipper.

Agree with your comments about the Princeton-Harvard game and Harvard going into a higher defensive gear in the second half. Princeton also benefited from a number of Harvard mistakes and a rather strange three second call on Harvard's center.

Harvard kicked away that game. Terrible decision making is their achilles and I don't have any confidence that will change. Columbia is so much more composed and talented.

Congrats to the Lady Lions on their victory over the Big Red today, giving them a share of the Ivy Title with Princeton. Their first in program history.

The #1 seed in Ivy Madness will go to the team with the higher NET ranking (announced tomorrow morning)... and it's going to be close. Columbia was #35 and Princeton was #41 entering today's games. The Lions will almost certainly drop due to their OT struggle with #259 Cornell... and it will also hurt their at-large bid if they don't win the Ivy tournament.

Taking nothing away from Cornell, but the Lions really missed Hannah Pratt today... she's so solid on both ends of the floor, and worthy of All-Ivy consideration.

Does anyone know why she did not suit up today? I didn't see any obvious sign of an injury.

Although I had to watch on ESPN and could not be there, the packed house was a statement of what winning teams can do to campus life. Reminded me of the Jimmy Mac years.

Columbia fell 10 spots to #45, so Princeton gets the #1 seed.

Columbia will play Harvard in the semis at 7 pm on Friday.

Hannah Pratt had some kind of leg injury. I think Griffith kept her out in anticipation of next weekend. We would have beaten Cornell by more if she had played, perhaps even enough to retain the #1 seed.

The #2 seed may be a morale blow, but frankly Harvard is getting better, and I'd rather play Penn, because an upset seems much less likely

Well, apparently, the official schedule is set, and we do play Harvard.

I still expect we'll win, but it will probably be a much closer and more nerve-wracking game.

I missed the first 15 mins of the ESPN telecast, so I played it back today and Lance Medow confirmed what you said… that Pratt was nursing a knee injury… no word if she’s going to be available next weekend. Even at 80%, she’s going to help immensely.

For us to win we need a game plan which lets Hsu get open for 3 point shots. All of the 4 teams have a legitimate chance at taking this tournament, and we are going to have to play much better than we did yesterday. As much as I hate to admit it, Cornell flat out outplayed us and we were just wily and experienced enough to squeak out a win in a game that we may well have lost.

Agree with you that Cornell outplayed us which was a huge surprise given the Big Red's 3-11 record. The Cornell players came out on fire hitting practically every outside shot they attempted in the first quarter while also defending very well. It was a surprisingly strong all-around effort from a team that had very little prior success throughout the 2022-2023 season. Meanwhile, our team found a way to win which is the mark of a champion and why we are so blessed to have a great game coach like Megan Griffith at the helm. Imagine what would have happened if the men's coach, Engles, was coaching down the stretch. Cornell probably would have easily won the game by 10-20 points. Anyway, as Coach Griffith basically said post-game, nothing is given to you in this world, you have to earn it. What a terrific coach and person she is.

Berube has been having more trouble as former assistants disburse to other Ivies.

Neither Moore nor Griffith coached with Berube. But, yes, Princeton assistants have taken over the League.
