Columbia 78-73… great win with contributions all around… Hsu led with 20 pts, but huge buckets by everyone in the 4th Qtr… Pratt, Patrick, Durr, and Davis. Their defense stepped up late, shutting down a very good Fordham team, who made it look easy scoring buckets almost the entire 2nd half.

Columbia vs Syracuse in the Super 16 at Levien on Friday night. The Orange crushed Seton Hall tonight by 18 in South Orange. The winner plays Rhode Island or Harvard next week for a Fab 4 spot.

Back to cc66's commentNCAA about the importance of Hannah Pratt to this Columbia team. Has anyone in the Athletic Department ever explored the question whether the NCAA was informed by Columbia that she missed the Cornell game due to an injury? Big mistake if the NCAA Committee was not informed as the NCAA Selection Committee lowered Columbia's ranking after that game which cost the Lions the 1st seed in the tournament.

If Columbia's NET ranking stayed higher than Princeton's, giving the Lions the #1 seed, Harvard would have dropped to the #4 seed (due to Penn's better record versus Columbia), so a Columbia/Harvard semi-final was inevitable.

Syracuse up by 4 at the half… winner plays Harvard for a spot in the Fab 4.

Columbia catapults past Syracuse, 88-82.

We play Harvard for the 4th time this season on Monday.

Terrific game. Both teams played well, but when all five starters score in double figures that team usually wins and that's what happened last night.

Tidbits: 1. NCAA Selection Committee members will be rooting for Harvard tomorrow night. 2. Coach Griffith made all the right moves last night. Imagine how many points Columbia would have lost by to Syracuse last night if Engles were coaching the women's team. 3. Some great individual match-ups tomorrow night.

Engles is a competent game coach. He is an abysmal recruiter with zero charisma and no outreach skills.

A shocker from the Great Chet Forte!!! After properly complaining for years about Engles obvious inability to coach anyone on a basketball court, Chet all of a sudden calls him "a competent game coach." Come on, unless you are talking about a different sport, such as ping-pong, Engles would not be allowed to coach basketball in your old Hackensack CYO.

Up by 20 after three quarters, Columbia withstands a Harvard run to win by 6, 77-71.

We're on to the WNIT final four.

Phew!… another furious 4th Qtr comeback by Harvard. The Lions play Florida or Bowling Green on Wednesday (venue TBD) in the WNIT semis.

BG is at 73 NET; Florida is 83. We beat Syracuse at 57, though admittedly at home.

At 47, we should be able to defeat either of them.

Any reaction to the Harvard comeback? Did we take our foot off the gas, or start to relax, when we were up by 20 in the 4th? And any thoughts about yet another poor 3 point game from Hsu?

From what Griffith said post game, it was a combination of Harvard pressuring us and a bit of overconfidence from a twenty pt. lead.

Hsu was covered tightly, went 1 for 8 from three, but ended with 12 pts. Harvard knows how to defend her--I think she just got 4 pts. in our ILT loss to them, but Davis caught on in the second half, and Henderson is suddenly playing with much more authority.

Kansas is the only remaining team with a higher NET ranking (at 37). If we can win in the semis, we probably won't be favored, but we do have a shot.

Columbia vs Bowling Green on Wednesday. They haven’t announced the site yet… maybe they’re doing a best of 7 roshambo? BGSU had their gym packed tonight (~ 3,800 in attendance), so that might give them the edge.

I think we can beat BG. Although I'm sure we have been scouted closely, BG doesn't have the experience dealing with Hsu that Harvard and Princeton did. Plus after a late season slump, Henderson is playing with much more confidence. It will be close, probably not much more than a few points either way, but I do like our chances in the semi-final.

They've just announced it--6 PM tomorrow at BG.

Now they have scheduled it for 6 PM Wednesday.

A little more time for Columbia to travel between games....

Whatever happens the Lions have had a season of success. The league is getting better each year, a development for which Griffith can claim much credit. No team can expect to go through the league schedule unscathed.
