PRINCETON, N.J. -- Big matchups under bright spotlights is the theme for Ivy League men's basketball entering the first weekend of February.

All eyes will be on New Haven, Conn. on Friday at 5 p.m. as Columbia (15-6, 4-0 Ivy League) and Yale (13-5, 4-0 Ivy) clash in a battle of unbeatens on FS1 and FOX Sports Go. The Bulldogs enter the game a perfect 8-0 at home this season and on an eight-game winning streak, while the Lions are on a hot streak themseleves having won their last six in a row.

One subplot to this game is Yale senior forward Brandon Sherrod's pursuit of an NCAA record. Sherrod, who shared the Ivy League Player of the Week Award with Cornell freshman guard Matt Morgan, has made 25 straight shots from the field dating back to the Jan. 16 Brown game, which is one shy of the NCAA single-season record shared by Eastern Michigan's James Thompson, who did it earlier this season, and Bowling Green's Torian Oglesby in 2012.

Alex Faust (play-by-play) and Tom Pecora (analyst) are set to call the action courtside from the John J. Lee Amphitheater.

Down in the city of Brotherly Love, another key contest in the #14GameTournament is on tap as Penn (6-11, 0-3 Ivy) plays host to Dartmouth (7-11, 1-3) on American Sports Network and The Ivy League Digital Network (ILDN). Both teams look to get back in the winning column after each came up short in both games the previous weekend.

Carl Reuter (play-by-play) and Blaine Taylor (analyst) are on the call for this game from The Palestra in Philadelphia.

The Columbia-Yale and Dartmouth-Penn matchups are the fourth and fifth games in the League's national television package that includes 11 men's basketball regular-season games -- three on FS1 and eight on American Sports Network.

The League also has a big weekend on the ESPN family of networks, beginning with Friday's Harvard at Princeton game on ESPNU and WatchESPN. Princeton (12-5, 2-1 Ivy) looks to keep pace ato the standings, while Harvard (9-11, 1-3) seeks to shake off the sting of its buzzer-beating defeat to the Lions six days ago. 

Drew Fellios (play-by-play) and Mark Wise (analyst) are scheduled to call this matchup from historic Jadwin Gymnasium.

Saturday's slate features three ILDN broadcasts can also be seen live on ESPN3 -- Dartmouth at Princeton (6 p.m.), Cornell at Yale (7 p.m.) and Harvard at Penn (7 p.m.). ILDN also has live coverage of both games from the Pizzitola Sports Center in Providence, R.I. as Brown (6-12, 1-3 Ivy) hosts Cornell (9-9, 2-2 Ivy) on Friday and Columbia on Saturday.
