Friday Sports Roundup: Exam Edition
Written by Bwog Staff
Even at Columbia, Reading Week doesn’t stop sports. Here’s the Friday Sports Roundup.
Men’s Basketball: On Tuesday, the men’s team lost another close game, falling 59-57 to St. Francis, despite leading by seven with 4:30 to go in the game. Joe Bova led the team with 11 points and 9 rebounds.
The weekend after exams, Columbia plays its toughest games of the season, as they take part in the Aeropastale Holiday Festival at Madison Square Garden. On the 20th, they play Virginia Tech, and then either St. John’s or Marist on the 21st. Both games will be shown on MSG.
Women’s Basketball: Last Saturday, the women’s basketball team won at home against Denver, 67-56. 4 Lions – Chelsea Frazier, Danielle Browne, Sara Yee, and Katrina Cragg – all scored in double figures, and forward Judie Lomax added 14 rebounds. On the 22nd, the women’s team takes on NC State at home.
Wrestling: The men’s team finished 27th out of 44 at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational last weekend. Sophomore heavyweight Ryan Flores, though, finished 5th at the event, and is now ranked 13th in the nation. The wrestling team does not renew action until January.
Swimming: The men and women both finished fourth at the Big Al Invite in Princeton, New Jersey. Both teams finished behind Princeton, but ahead of Brown and Harvard. The teams return to the pool in January.
