The weekend just gets worse for Columbia basketball, as men’s and women’s both lost their games against Dartmouth.

The men’s team once again was unable to hold off a second-half surge, being outscored 42-22 in the second half to fall 67-53. Despite the loss, guard K.J. Matsui and forward Jason Miller each had 19 points.

The women’s team led for much of the game, but were unable to hang on in the end, falling 63-61. Guard Danielle Brown led all scorers with 19 points.

On the bright side for Columbia athletics, the fencing team had a successful Intercollegiate Fencing Association Championships, winning several individual gold medals. Junior Jeff Spear won in men’s sabre, while sophomore Nicole Ross and first-year Neely Brandfield-Harvey won in women’s foil epee, respectively. The women’s team also had the most victories overall.
