Men’s And Women’s Basketball Both Fall

 – Columbia University Athletics

A tough night on Friday for Columbia’s basketball teams: the men’s team fell to Harvard 71-63, while the women lost as well to Harvard, 71-58.

The men’s team went into the night holding teams to a 41% field goal percentage, but Harvard shot 60% from the field in the second half, and at one point led by 15. 4 Harvard players were in double figures, including guard Jeremy Lin (14 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists). For Columbia, guard Nourwha Agho led the way with 13 points.

The women’s team lost in remarkably similar fashion, with Harvard again shooting 60% in the second half to pull away. Columbia’s forwards did their best to keep the Lions in the game, though, with Lauren Dwyer providing 18 points and Judie Lomax providing yet another double-double (15 points, 16 rebounds).

Both teams fall to 6-5 in the Ivy League, and take on their Dartmouth counterparts (the women at home, the men in Hanover) tonight at 7.
