PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men’s basketball rolls into the New Year with another full slate with 13 games on the schedule this week.

All eight Ancient Eight teams are in action with the first Ivy game of the 2011-12 season taking place Saturday afternoon between Harvard and Dartmouth from Lavietes Pavilion in Cambridge, Mass. Cornell and Yale join Dartmouth and Harvard in playing two games during the first full week of January. Columbia has the most active week among the Ivies with three games in seven days, including two straight on the road.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Yale senior center Greg Mangano (Orange, Conn.) was outstanding in the two games against major conference competition, posting double-doubles in road games at Wake Forest and No. 10 Florida. Mangano was particularly impressive against Florida, when he scored 26 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. He was 4-of-6 from three-point range as the Bulldogs stayed with the Gators for most of the game. Fifteen of his 26 points came in the second half. Against Wake Forest, Mangano poured in 20 points and 12 rebounds. With a combined five blocks in both games, he became Yale’s all-time blocks leader with 176 for his career, breaking the mark established by Chris Dudley.
