Knickerbocker Roundup: We’re Back! Edition

Did you miss Columbia Athletics? Either way, Sports Editor Abby Rubel is here to tell you what’s up.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…Columbia basketball!

Men’s Basketball: After losing a close game at Cornell 60-59 last week, Columbia (5-10, 0-1 Ivy) will seek to defeat the Big Red (9-8, 1-0 Ivy) at home on Saturday at 7:00 pm. Cornell has won four of their last five games, thanks in part to junior Matt Morgan, who averages just over 23 points a game, putting him at 12th in the NCAA. Columbia’s top scorer, senior Quinton Adlesh, averages just over 13 points per game, closely followed by sophomore Gabe Stefanini with 12.3 points per game. Stefanini led Columbia’s comeback against Cornell last week, hitting six straight to give the Lions their first lead of the game, and he is projected to start tomorrow.

Women’s Basketball: Women’s basketball (4-10, 0-1 Ivy) will also take on Cornell (7-5, 1-0 Ivy) in Levien at 4:00 pm. After a 60-51 loss in Ithaca last week, the Lions are looking to defeat the Big Red for the first time since 2014. The first-year Lions have been making a big difference this season, scoring more than half the team’s points and rebounds, and 61 percent of its assists. Sophomore Riley Casey has also been particularly successful—she’s averaged over 20 points per game in the last four games, and went 16-40 in three-pointers. She and first-year Madison Hardy are third and fourth in the Ivies in three-point percentage.

Men’s Swimming and Diving: The Lions (3-4, 2-4 Ivy) will have their last home meet on Friday at 2:00 pm against Navy (11-2). Both teams have won their last two meets, and last year Columbia edged out a victory, 151-149. Keep an eye on sophomore Jonathan Suckow, who holds the third-place Ivy record in the one meter dive.
