On Saturday, the football team opened the defense of their Ivy League title with a victory over Columbia. The 21–10 win over the Lions was characterized by some eye-opening plays, and trends that may carry over into the remainder of the season. Here are three takeaways from the game.
On a Friday night in New York City last year, Princeton football’s 45–10 win over Columbia inaugurated the team’s Ivy League play and foreshadowed the tremendous season to come. Though the 2018 team had dominated in two non-conference games to open the season, it was difficult to know how well its members would hold up until they had been tested in conference play. A commanding win over a solid Ivy League opponent sent a message to the rest of the league — Princeton was the team to beat.

Baseball vs. Columbia: L 8–2, W 8–6, L 2–1
Spring sports are in full swing. Here are recaps of some of this weekend’s action.
Lacrosse, as they say, is a game of runs. Princeton men’s lacrosse (3–6, 0–3 Ivy) has recently found itself too often on the wrong end of those runs. A 7–1 run in a loss to Johns Hopkins. A 12–1 run in a loss at Penn. A 6–1 run in a loss to Yale. Most recently, Princeton suffered a 6–1 Brown run in the second half of its 14–10 loss to the Bears (4–5, 2–0) this Saturday at Sherrerd Field.
Leading No. 6 Kentucky (25–7, 11–5 SEC) by four points at halftime in the first round of the NCAA tournament, No. 11 Princeton women’s basketball (22–10, 12–2 Ivy) was 20 minutes away from pulling off an upset. Unfortunately for the Tigers, Kentucky had other ideas. The Wildcats outscored Princeton by nine points in the second half, ending Princeton’s season with a 82–77 win.
For the first 35 minutes of Sunday evening’s Ivy women’s basketball tournament championship in New Haven, Princeton (22–9, 12–2 Ivy) and Penn (23–6, 12–2) looked about as evenly matched as two teams could. In the final five minutes, Princeton proved that it deserved to repeat as tournament champion.
For the third straight year, Princeton women’s basketball (21–9, 12–2 Ivy) is going to the Ivy tournament championship game. And for the third straight year, Princeton will face Penn (23–5, 12–2).
