PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League has reached the midway point of the 2011-12 season and the action this weekend will dictate how the rest of the campaign will play out. Princeton takes its 7-0 record into Columbia and Cornell and the teams jockeying for second-place will face key matchups this weekend.

Harvard, sitting in third-place at 5-2, will face Brown on Friday and Yale on Saturday, the fourth and second-place teams, respectively. The Crimson defeated the Bears earlier this season, 65-57 at home, but fell to Yale, 68-63. The Bulldogs are looking to sweep Harvard for the second-straight season. Dartmouth will also take on Yale and Brown over the weekend. The Big Green's contest against the Bulldogs will be televised on the YES Network.

In other Ivy action, Penn sits a game behind Cornell with an opportunity to tie the Big Red on Friday. The Quakers will then travel to New York to face the Lions.
