Making history once again, junior forward Bella Alarie secured 41 points for the women’s basketball team (13–9 overall, 5–2 Ivy League) against Dartmouth (10–11, 3–5) on Saturday afternoon. This makes her the only player in Princeton history to score 40 points or more in a game twice, with the first time happening against Columbia earlier this month. In an interview following the Dartmouth game, head coach Courtney Banghart praised the 2018 Ivy League Player of the Year.
This weekend, the No. 5 ranked women’s hockey team (15–2–3 ECAC, 18–4–5) played their last home games in the 2018–2019 regular season. The Tigers hosted Union (2–17–1, 4–26–2) on Friday night and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) (10–9–1, 13–14–5) Saturday afternoon for the Senior Day game. Princeton’s split this weekend with a win against Union and loss against RPI means that they still lead the ECAC, but going into the last weekend of the regular season play they lead Cornell by just one point. A loss by Clarkson (15–5–0, 24–7–1) in overtime to Dartmouth (4–15–1 ECAC, 5–20–2) on Friday means that Princeton leads them by three points.

This is the team’s eighth Ivy League championship, its first since the 2015–2016 season, and Head Coach Cara Morey’s first in her tenure as Princeton’s head coach.

Even for the most devoted of NFL fans, Super Bowl LIII was hard to watch.
