Women's Basketball Weekend Preview for Feb. 24-25

PRINCETON, N.J. -- With two and a half weeks remaining in the regular-season, Princeton (19-4, 9-0 Ivy) can wrap up at least a share of the Ivy League title with a sweep this coming weekend. The Tigers, who host Harvard (13-10, 6-3 Ivy) and Dartmouth (4-19, 2-7 Ivy), can clinch their third-straight Ivy League Championship with a sweep and a loss by Yale, which travels to face Columbia (2-21, 0-9 Ivy) and Cornell (10-13, 4-5 Ivy).

The Bulldogs (15-9, 7-3 Ivy) are still in the running, however, if they sweep the Lions and the Big Red. Harvard and Brown (15-9, 6-4 Ivy) each need Princeton to lose once while winning both of their games to remain in contention. The Bears face Cornell and Columbia. In the weekend’s other action, Penn (10-13, 3-6 Ivy) will host Dartmouth and the Crimson.

The race for second-place will come down to the wire. Yale, Harvard and Brown are all within a game of each other and each team is 1-1 against the other two.
