As the Ivy League women’s basketball season draws closer to its conclusion, much still remains to be decided for the Ancient Eight. Princeton remains firmly entrenched in the top five of the league, looking to clinch a spot in the top 4 this weekend. Elsewhere, teams jockey for tournament seeding as three teams currently sit tied for two spots. Finally, the league’s bottom teams look to use these last few weeks to make some noise and end their season on a positive note albeit with some upsets.
The Tigers — leaders of the Ivy League — took care of business this weekend with consecutive road victories at Cornell and Columbia, the league’s current seventh and eighth place teams.
On Feb. 6, ESPN broadcaster Rece Davis made one of his first trips to Princeton as a commentator, getting the chance to cover the Tigers and Penn Quakers' face-off on the basketball court. Later on this year, Rece will add to the many trips he has taken as a parent to watch the Tigers square off in their baseball home opener against the Harvard Crimson and to cheer on his son, sophomore outfielder Chris Davis.
“It’s a big three games coming up for us,” Head Coach Courtney Banghart said on Wednesday regarding the Harvard, Dartmouth and Penn games. “It is very helpful that all of those games are home,” she added. “It’s where you practice everyday, and it’s where you establish your routine . . . We draw the most [home fans] in the league and we know there will be a lot of people there.”
You can’t change the facts: Princeton is the big brother in this relationship and will continue to be until Penn can prove otherwise. Penn, maybe one day you’ll know what it’s like. Maybe one day you’ll rise to the top of the standings and put us in our place. But until then, we hope you like the taste of your face in the mud.
Brandon Anderson went to the free throw line 13 times for the Brown Bears, but his only miss of the night from the charity stripe was the one that mattered most, and the one that will be burned into the Tigers’ memories for the rest of this season.

The University Department of Athletics announced on Monday that it was adding three new sports to its list of Division I sports: curling, mini golf, and Madden. All three sports will have a men’s and women’s division, increasing the number of men’s sports to 21 and women’s sports to 20.
The Princeton football team has declared themselves 2017 National Champions. Despite finishing with a 5-5 record and not playing in the Football Bowl Subdivision, college football’s highest tier, the team believes it has a legitimate claim to the title.
The women’s basketball team closed out 2017 in style with a dominating performance over the University of Maryland, Baltimore County Retrievers at Jadwin Gymnasium on Saturday. The Tigers (10-3) earned the impressive 77-40 victory to close out the year with a four-game win streak and wins in seven of their last eight games.
After having their conference opener against UPenn postponed due to the snow, the Tigers dropped the rescheduled game this afternoon 76–70. The loss puts the Tigers (7–8) below .500 and delivers a big — albeit early — blow to the Tigers’ Ivy League performance. In a game against teams looking to challenge Harvard and Yale for Ivy League supremacy, chalk round one up to the other guys.
The Tigers (11–3) defeated the Quakers by a score of 70–55. With the win, the Tigers earned their sixth victory in a row and won against UPenn for the first time in their last six attempts. In this rematch between the teams that finished first and second, UPenn and Princeton respectively, the Tigers rewrote the narrative that everyone was expecting; defeating the Quakers at the Palestra will be considered a big upset by many people in the coming days, who predicted UPenn as the runaway Ivy League favorite.
The Tigers victory over the Warriors concluded a 12 day, 10,500 mile road trip. They wrap up their non-conference schedule with a 7-7 record and now have a long week and a half off before kicking off their Ivy League season against Penn with a showdown in the Palestra.

Princeton’s newest soccer team is venturing out beyond the Orange Bubble and breaking the mold of traditional sports teams on campus. And, it’s taking the University by storm with a 400 percent membership increase since its inception in September.
After finishing in second place in both the Ivy League regular season and falling in the championship round of the Ivy League tournament, the Tigers were given a home game in the first round of the WNIT, where they would face fellow tri-state area college Villanova. Last season, the Tigers were upset in Jadwin 59-54, putting a sour end to an otherwise great season. In the defeat, the Tigers were unable to stop the Villanova starting five, who accounted for all but 6 points in the Wildcats win. Villanova was also able to contain then-freshman Bella Alarie last season as she was held to only 9 points, one of the lowest marks in her Tiger career.
While the Princeton women’s basketball team did not get the win on Sunday, Nov. 19 — they lost to undefeated Georgia Tech 67-56 at Jadwin Gymnasium — many positive things stood out that show long term signs of success for the team. One of the biggest signs is the play of sophomore power forward Bella Alarie, who continued her hot start with her second straight double double.
