Men’s Basketball Wins at Penn

Written by

Not content with two wins in a row, the Columbia men’s basketball team made it three in a row last night, winning 74-63 at Penn in Philadelphia. It was the first win at Penn in seven years, and the first double digit win at Penn in two decades.

Key contributions came from guards K.J. Matsui (three first-half threes) and Pat Foley (ten second-half points), but the star was forward Jason Miller, who had an absolutely brilliant game with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Much of the game was a see-saw battle, until the Lions defense stepped up about halfway through the 2nd half and gave the team a 8 point cushion. Down the stretch, the Lions also made 12 of their last 14 free throws to ensure the win.

In other Ivy League games, Dartmouth squeaked by Brown, 63-61 in overtime, Yale beat Harvard 87-66 in Cambridge, and, tonight, Columbia (now 3-2 in the league) heads to Princeton to take on a Tigers team that just beat Cornell 61-41. Tip-off is at 6 p.m., and can be heard on WKCR or 970AM.
