PRINCETON, N.J. -- As the temperature in the Northeast gets colder, the race for the Ivy League women's basketball title heats up with the first weekend of back-to-back conference contests.

 The highlight of the weekend will take place on Friday, Feb. 1, as the last two unbeaten Ivy teams will square off as Princeton (10-5, 1-0 Ivy) returns to action for the first time since Jan. 12 with a road game at Cornell (10-6, 2-0 Ivy) at 7:00 p.m. The Tigers have won 25-straight games in Ivy play, the longest conference winning streak in League history, and the second-longest current conference winning streak in the nation (Baylor, 31).

Princeton will then take its talents to New York, where it will face Columbia (2-14, 0-2 Ivy). The Lions have dropped six-straight games and are coming off a double-overtime loss at home to Cornell, 71-64. Penn (7-8, 0-1 Ivy) looks for its first conference win of the season when it takes on Columbia and Cornell.

Harvard (10-6, 1-1 Ivy) looks to rebound from its first Ivy loss with a pair of road games at Yale (6-10, 1-1 Ivy) and Brown (7-9, 1-1 Ivy). The Crimson saw its three-game winning streak come to an end at the hands of Dartmouth (3-13, 1-1 Ivy) on Jan. 26. The Big Green has won two of its past three after dropping 12 in a row and looks to continue its solid play against Brown and Yale.

The Bulldogs and Bears opened their Ivy slate against each other, splitting the two games, with Brown winning the first, 68-67, before Yale took the second, 59-47.
