PRINCETON, N.J. -- With the majority of Ivy schools in exam and winter breaks, it is very light schedule for Ivy League men's basketball with only four games on the slate this week.
Two of those games are Ivy travel-partner matchups as Brown hosts Yale and Columbia welcomes Cornell on Saturday. Also on the weekend, Harvard plays its final non-conference game for this season in a road tilt at George Washington.
Penn is the first of the Ivies to take to the court this week
with the first of three-straight Big Five battles, traveling to La
Salle on Wednesday in a game that will be televised on The Comcast

Columbia junior guard Noruwa Agho (New City, N.Y.) came up big for the Lions in two wins over Lafayette and Union.
