Last-Second Shot Sinks Lions

Written by

 – Columbia University Athletics

Tough luck in Levien tonight, as Penn’s Kevin Egee sank a three with time expired to down Columbia 51-50. The game was close the entire way through, with both teams shooting less than 40%, and neither team had a larger lead than 8. After taking 8-point lead with 6 minutes to go, though, the Lions failed to capitalize, and missed crucial free throws down the stretch. Kevin Bulger was the only Columbia player in double figures, while Jason Miller  had 9 rebounds.

Columbia finishes the season 12-16 overall, and 7-7 in the Ivy League, tied for fourth. This was also the last game for Miller and fellow seniors K.J. Matsui, Dan Trepanier, and Joe Bova. They leave Columbia with a record of 53-59 overall, and 25-31 in the Ivy League.

  1. ah man  

    our boys played such a good game! this last second fluke shot by penn was such bullshit.

  2. false  

    honestly, the lions played terribly tonight. Their offense rarely capitalized. Although they moved the ball well, they often could never penetrate in, and many of the shots were lucky drives. They also killed it on free throws. It was messy basketball by both teams, and Penn just got the lucky bounce.

  3. hmm...  

    Is Kevin Egee related to the freshman Lion Steve Egee???

    If so, that would make for some funny family conversations.

  4. Lol,

    Princeton spy is too late.
