It’s an Ivy League match up on Friday night.
The Columbia Lions make the trip to Harvard to take on the Crimson.
This is the second meeting between the two times. Columbia won the first meeting 65-62.
The Columbia Lions have played what looks like a very disappointing season if you just look at the record. But they played a very tough schedule and have had some key wins.
They come into this game with an 10-11 record and sit in fourth place in the Ivy League.
They however have lost their last two games and will look to get back on the right track on Friday night.
Most of the Lions problems come on the defensive side of the ball. They score 72 points per game but give up 73. It’s usually not a good sign when a team gives up more points then they score.
The Lions are led by Senior forward Luke Petrasek. He averages 15.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
For the Lions to win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. They need to keep the pace of this game down, and really try to grind out a victory.
The Harvard Crimson have had a very good season, but this game is a must win if they want any chance to win the Ivy league crown and get a bid to the big dance.
The Crimson come into this game with a record of 14-7 which sits them in second place in the Ivy League. They are two games back of first place though, so they can’t lose another game if they want to win the title.
Harvard is led by Freshman guard Bryce Aiken.
He averages 14.3 points, 2.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game. For the Crimson to win they need to try and push the pace. The weakness for the Lions is their defense and the Crimson can expose that by playing an up tempo pace.
