Written by Bwog Staff
Men’s Basketball: The men’s basketball team had one of its most successful weekends of the season, sweeping Yale and Brown on consecutive nights at home. Against Yale, Jason Miller’s 16 points and 10 rebounds led the Lions’ comeback from a nine point halftime deficit to win 53-42, while against Brown the team shot 52% in the second half to pull away and win 67-60. Another piece of good news for the Lions was the return of guard Pat Foley, who scored 12 and 10 points in the two games. This weekend, the men’s team hits the road to play at Penn on Friday night and at Princeton on Saturday. Both games can be heard at 7 p.m. on WKCR and 970AM.
Women’s Basketball: The women’s team split their two games, falling 63-61 to Yale on Friday, before bouncing back to beat Brown 76-51. Against Yale, forward Judie Lomax had 14 points and 18 rebounds, but the Lions were unable to pull out a game that was tied 13 times. The night after against Brown, guard Sara Yee scored 20 points, and Lomax again added 18 points and 15 rebounds, as the Lions romped to 25 point victory. This weekend, the team comes back home for games against Penn tonight and Princeton tomorrow night, both at 7 p.m. in the Levien Gym.
