Knickerbocker Roundup: Squash Your Opponents Edition

Sports Editor Abby Rubel wants you to know EXACTLY what’s going on in sports

Me trying to reach the end of the semester.

Men’s and Women’s Squash: Both squash teams will play three matches this weekend against Williams College, University of Virginia, and Cornell. The Lions will travel to Williams on Friday for a match at 4:30, then come back to New York for the remaining two games, which will be played at SL Green StreetSquash. Both squads are coming off an excellent previous season. The men took home the Ivy League title for the first time in program history and completed the season ranked third in the country. The women finished the season seventh in the country, the best finish in program history. The College Squash Association ranked them at those levels in the preseason.

Men’s Swimming and Diving: The Lions will travel to Rhode Island for the Brown Invitational this weekend. The meet, which will follow a championship format, starts at 10:00 am Friday and ends Sunday evening. Junior Nian-Guo Liu and sophomore Albert Gwo are both expected to have a good weekend. Liu has won three 200-yard freestyle races this season; his top time is 1:38.45. And Gwo has won three 50-yard freestyle events, with a 20.42 finish at Yale.

Men’s Basketball: Columbia (1-4) will take on Delaware (5-2) in a home game on Sunday at 2:00 pm. Delaware has won five of its last six games, while Columbia registered its first victory last weekend, against St. Joseph’s. The Lions are 2-5 all-time against the Blue Hens. Junior Mike Smith and sophomore Gabe Stefanini have both started the season strong. Smith has been averaging 15.8 points per game, which puts him fifth in the Ivies. He leads the league in assists, with 5 on the season. Smith, who already has 922 points to his name, could be the 29th Lion to reach 1,000 points. Stefanini, with 16.2 points per game, is second in the Ivies in scoring. He also ranks 14th in the NCAA in 3-point field goal percentage, making 55.6 percent of his shots beyond the arc.
