PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ancient Eight spent the holiday week primarily on the road, with just three of 18 contests played on an Ivy home court. All three home games resulted in wins for the Ivy squads, however, as Cornell (1-5) earned its first win of the season, 62-54, over Winston-Salem, Dartmouth (2-4) topped Vermont, 66-51, and Brown (2-4) beat Bryant, 57-49.

Princeton (3-2) earned its first-ever Pac-10 win, beating USC, 60-59, while Dartmouth, Harvard (3-2) and Penn (2-2) each picked up a road win.

On the slate this week are 13 games, beginning with Penn hosting Niagra on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Columbia (0-5) will be in search of its first win Thursday, Dec. 2 when it hosts Wagner and Harvard will play its first home game on Friday, Dec. 3 against Hartford. The week concludes on Sunday, Dec. 5 with Florida at Brown, Rider at Princeton and Columbia at Monmouth.

CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Addie Micir (Newton, Pa.) scored both free throws with 5.0 seconds left to give Princeton a 60-59 win over USC on Friday, Nov. 26. This is Princeton’s first win over a Pac-10 team in program history. She finished the game with 10 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal against the Trojans, a team receiving votes in both national polls. The victory advanced Princeton to the championship game with host Vanderbilt. Against No. 22/24 Vanderbilt, Princeton’s first ranked opponent of the season, the Tigers nearly defeated the Commodores, falling 74-68. Micir led the team in scoring with 20 points, a season-high. She shot 6-for-13 from long range, matching her career best of six three-pointers in a game. She added three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal. Micir was named to the five-member All-Tournament team for the her efforts this weekend.

CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Brittney Smith
(Fort Worth, Texas) got the job done on both ends of the court for Dartmouth this week, recording her 26th and 27th career double-doubles, bringing her season total to three. The senior had a monster week, averaging 20.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.5 steals per game in two victories for Dartmouth. Smith shot a staggering 60 percent from the floor and only committed two turnovers while playing 34.5 minutes per game. Against Vermont, Smith cruised to 21 points and dished out three assists while terrorizing the Catamounts with a career-high seven steals. At Bryant, Smith battled through an extremely physical game to come out with her 20 points and 13 rebounds, also adding two assists and two steals. After struggling from the free throw line during regulation, Smith helped seal the win in extra time by going 5-of-6 at the stripe and grabbing three boards.
